A premier online LGBT dating website, MyQualityConnection, is encouraging LGBT athletes in the Winter Olympics by asking supporters of the community to change their profile pictures on social media to their created image.
Feb-10-2014 – While the Olympics are supposed to send out a message of peace and acceptance among people of different religions, countries, race, and sexual orientation, the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics have not yet taken the LGBT community into account.
Russia’s discriminating anti gay law has caused an upheaval not only among the LGBT community, but also the world at large. Mr. Vladimir Putin has at times openly expressed his sentiments against homosexuality and this has put the whole nation in a precarious position right before the Olympics.
MyQualityConnection, an online socializing and dating website that solely caters to the LGBT community, strongly opposes this law because it believes that all human beings are created equally, which is why they should also be treated equally regardless of their sexual orientation. Just like the Olympics are known to be an amalgam of athletes from different countries and cultures, similarly, they should also openly embrace people of any sexual orientation.
This is why the website is requesting all supporters of the LGBT community to change their profile pictures on whatever social media they’re on to an image MyQualityConnection has created. This will show everyone’s solidarity with the LGBT community.
Leaders and civilians across the world are also voicing their opinion of this unfair treatment and are terming it a human rights violation. The Russian law bans gay propaganda in the presence of minors and it can result in fines or even jail time for those who stage gay-rights events or treat homosexual relationships the same way as heterosexual relationships.
According to Charles Adams, Director of Community Outreach and Liaison to the Press, “Here at MyQualityConnection.com, we are concerned about not only the treatment of LGBT Olympians and fans, but about the spirit of the Olympics themselves. We are saddened and disturbed that the Olympics, which is expressly committed to providing equal opportunity to all athletes, regardless of race, religion, politics, gender, or other factors, is being held in an arena of discrimination. We believe the best way to combat hate is through love and support. We designed this image as a tangible means by which people can demonstrate their support for LGBT athletes in Sochi as they compete not only against other athletes but also against intolerance.”
Companies such as Google, MyQualityConnection, and American Apparel are just a few that have raised their voice against this inequality. These companies are openly supporting LGBT athletes taking part at the Sochi Winter Olympics this year. Specifically, MyQualityConnectionwants the athletes to feel confident and loved, which is why it is asking everyone to change their social media profile picture to their created image.
