In June, Russia passed a controversial law, being called the anti-gay law by many, which bans “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations among minors.” Gay rights activists around the world have asked the International Olympic Committee to insist the law is repealed prior to the Winter Games in Sochi, Russia this upcoming February.

On Monday, the Human Rights Campaign, the largest U.S gay-rights group, launched a new initiative along with dozens of the countries most influential celebrities. Jonah Hill, Anthony Bourdain, Kristen Bell, and others will share photos of themselves wearing a Russian language “Love Conquers Hate” t-shirt on their social media platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

All proceeds from t-shirt sales will go towards a fund supporting gay-rights efforts in Russia.

"We stand with Russia's LGBT community and their allies," said HRC President Chad Griffin. "We are committed to doing as much as we possibly can to support their efforts to repeal this heinous law."
