Russia’s controversial anti-gay propaganda law has sparked the “defining civil rights movement of our time” according to U.S. athlete Nick Symmonds.



CNN reports the recently implemented law has been criticized by U.S. President Barack Obama and there have been calls by some to boycott next year’s winter Olympics in the Russian city of Sochi.

It bars “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations to minors” and so effectively prevents gay people from expressing their sexuality in public, according to CNN.
