!! OMG, they ain’t playin! THE ADVOCATE Magazine lists Russian President Vladimir Putin as their PERSON OF THE YEAR !!

Is Russian president Vladimir Putin the world’s most influential LGBT rights figure? According to The Advocate — YES! From editor Matthew Breen:

We knew we’d see highly polarized responses to the cover. But the purpose was to answer the question, “Who had the most impact on LGBT people globally in 2014?” One effect is to keep the treatment of queer Russians in conversation, post-Sochi. The world must not forget what’s happening there now that the Olympics are over.
There are undeniable parallels in Putin’s scapegoating of gays and lesbians and the Nazi scapegoating of Jews, gays and lesbians, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and the Romani. He’s describing gays and lesbians and the nefarious export of western hegemony that Russia must resist, to remain pure. He’s tacitly encouraging the confluence of homosexuality and pedophilia in Russians’ minds as a cynical means of maintaining his power. His thugs are torturing and killing us. He’s got blood on his hands. He’s a global threat. It’s not an idle comparison.

Well said! Check your newsstands for the latest issue of The Advocate, out now.
