Via GayPolitics Report: Olympics officials are concerned about Russian anti-gay law

The International Olympic Committee expressed concern this week after the Russian parliament advanced by unanimous vote legislation that would punish those convicted of "promoting homosexuality." The 2014 Winter Olympics are to be held in the Russian resort town of Sochi, where officials previously denied establishment of a Pride house for LGBT athletes in the Olympic village. Some out athletes have expressed alarm about the law, saying it could put them at risk of arrest. Associated Press (6/11), Gay Star News (6/12), (6/12), Washington Blade (Washington, D.C.) (6/12)
