Parents of a Gay Man Stand Up For LGBTQ Rights While In Russia

Tourists - and impromptu activists - Richard and Rochelle Cohen

I liked this story, My Parents Who Believe Being Gay Is Okay Went To Russia And This Is What They Did.

It explains how tourists Richard and Rochelle Cohen (parents of gay pinknews founder Benjamin Cohen) held up a "Gay OK" sign in their photos in the Russian city of St. Petersburg.

I'm glad Ben's parents weren't arrested, and I'm proud of them for doing something.  For standing up.

That's how we'll change our world (and the situation in Russia.)  If enough of us stand up for what's right.

Let's all stand up!
