Gay rights activists across the globe have called on the international community to boycott the upcoming 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, over the country's continued crackdown on gay rights activists and LGBTQ tourists.
Already, online petition creators have amassed thousands of digital signatures calling for a complete boycott of the upcoming games.
One such petition, currently on Change.org, has amassed some 20,000 signatures.
RUSA LGBT, an LGBTQ advocacy organization made up of Russian speakers, is leading the call for a boycott of the games. Its message is pretty simple: Do not support Sochi.
