In October 6th 2013 Dalston Superstore, Culture Device, The Queer Archive and TEDxHackney presented a day of talks on a subject close to our hearts. Most news-conscious people are all too aware of the anti-LGBT atrocities being committed in Russia. As the host borough for the Olympics in 2012, Hackney is an ideal place for discussions on this subject to take place.

To Russia LGBT with Love was an event about the humanitarian crisis of the LGBT community of Russia which featured a whole host of influential speakers, activists, and artists and asked them to look into this crisis and help find a solution and raise awareness.

A website dedicated to this event has been created and it features all the talks that took place that day: TO RUSSIA LGBT WITH LOVE WEBSITE
