Thank you all for the links and info! As someone going through a hard time having to deal with aggressive homophobia and generally oppressive atmosphere, I find it especially inspiring and uplifting to learn that the rest of the world cares and supports us.
Also, about the LBC podcast, Sheremet did meet Elton John backstage in Kiev :-) He didn't do it on stage but Sheremet is an openly gay (and very cute :-) public figure in Ukraine, so I don't think if he'd gone on stage it would have made his life any less dangerous.

Any support that you need - petitions, campaigns - count me in. We forget how lucky we are in this country to have decent freedom of expression & levels of tolerance of all sorts & conditions of humans, & it's so sad to hear of people still suffering unnecessarily for their essential nature.

:thumbsup: to Kaleidoscope Trust and John Barrowman... :thumbsup:

Love all the pics too. :D
BTW...did anyone see John on BBC news?? I missed it. Is there a chance it's on iPlayer?
Do you mean the BBC News channel or the news at BBC 1? If it is BBC 1 I amy be able to find it.

It's so sad the Eastern Europe and especially Russia and some other former Sowjet Union countries seem to mave backward instead of forward thoise days. As the toehrs said, if there is anything we can help, count me in.

Brilliant! He did a wonderful job of highlighting both the charity and the issues. He's such an amazing role model. The world needs more like him.

And I think we can safely say that the video is getting around very well:
