What’s more terrifying than the state of LGBT rights in many parts of the world today? 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! There’s only 4 days left in the campaign, and if everyone who reads this donates 5 bucks, we can all band together in saying Suck it, Putin!
