The Moscow Times names President Obama one of the Five Heroes of Russia's Gay Rights Movement

So, The Moscow Times named President Obama one of their top five heroes of the Russian gay rights movement. Interesting honor to get from the Mother country.

The paper noted this about the President:
"American authorities have long raised questions about human rights and LGBT issues in Russia and Obama sent a clear signal during his visit to St. Petersburg for the G20 summit, where he organized a meeting with human rights and LGBT activists amid a busy schedule and ongoing negotiations regarding the conflict in Syria."
I think it's cool and very telling about the global appeal he has.
