Activists rallied in New York on February 5 to call on sponsors of the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi to speak out against Russian antigay legislation. The event was organized by gay-rights group All Out and took place simultaneously in some 20 cities around the world. Gay-rights activists say Russian legislation that forbids "the propaganda of nontraditional sexual relationships to minors" is used to persecute homosexuals.
