!! OMG, PYOTR495, a new film set amidst the anti-gay attacks and abductions in Russia needs your support !!

What’s more terrifying than the state of LGBT rights in many parts of the world today? Well, a new film titled PYOTR495 is shining a light on the violent abductions and attacks taking place in Russia, and they need your support in reaching completion today!

The retro-tinged horror stars Alex Ozerov (Orphan Black, Coconut Hero, The History Of Love, Christmas Horror Story) revolves around the attacks which are so often ignored as a result of Russia’s LGBT Propaganda law. A bit about the film:

“Set one evening in present day Moscow, 16 year-old Pyotr is baited by an ultranationalist group known for their violent abductions and attacks bolstered by Russia’s LGBT propaganda law, but Pyotr has a dangerous secret his attackers could never have accounted for.”

PYOTR495 needs your support in its post-production to delivery stages, and has launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign with a shop full of perks and incentives to help the production reach a solid completion and raise the funding it needs. Check out the trailer below — and support the film HERE today! I mean, if everyone who reads this donates 5 bucks, we can all band together in saying Suck it, Putin!

!! OMG, WATCH: Elle Fanning as a trans teenage in the trailer for ABOUT RAY !!

Here’s Elle Fanning starring opposite Susan Sarandon and Naomi Watts in a new film about a trans teen, transitioning from female to male.

Though it appears from the trailer, which premiered on Vanity Fair, that Ray’s mother (Naomi Watts) is on board with her child’s transition, Ray’s absent father (Tate Donovan), who has a new family, seems resistant. Ray’s grandmother (Susan Sarandon) pops in with uneducated comments like, “Why can’t she just be a lesbian?”

Someone grab my earplugs because I can already hear the deafening Oscar buzz. Jared Leto is giving Elle a knowing wink – this sounds like a recipe for accolades!
