Canadian pub protests Russian anti-gay law with vodka ban

UPI News Service, 07/26/2013 

A British Columbia bar said it will not serve Russian vodka brands in protest of Russia's law allowing for the arrests of tourists suspected of being gay.

Andrew Wattling, manager of the Fountainhead Pub in Vancouver, said Russian vodka brands such as Stolichnaya and Russian Standard will no longer be served at the establishment, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported Friday.

The Russian law includes a ban on giving minors information on "non-traditional" sexual relationships and gives police the power to arrest tourists or foreign nationals suspected of being homosexuals or supporting homosexuality.

"Not doing anything is almost agreeing with it. So silence is acceptance, and you know, we can all just sit back and not do something," Wattling said. "This is one small tiny thing that we can do to sort of stand up and support LGBT communities in Russia and worldwide."
