    Gay Bars' Ban on Russian Vodka Is Going Global



    [​IMG]

    ALEXANDER ABAD-SANTOS83,957 Views11:44 AM ET
    What started out as Dan Savage's pledge against consuming Russian vodka is now a movement that has gay bars all around the world, from Vancouver to London, dumping Russian vodka to show their displeasure with the country's treatment of gay people—even in the face of one of Russia's prominent LGBT activists saying the whole thing is pointless.

    When we last we checked in with Savage's plea for gay people to stop drinking Russian vodka to protest the Kremlin's aggressive anti-gay laws, a couple of gay bars in Chicago had joined in the boycott. Since then, more and more bars around the world have joined in: London's world-famous Heaven nightclub, along with several others venues in the British capital, aren't serving Russian booze; a bevy ofVancouver bars have followed suit, as have venues in Sydney, West Hollywood, New York City and San Francisco.
    The ban is part of a growing movement to check Russia's increasingly homophobic political milieu

    Russian cops love to beat the fuck out of pro-gay protesters. It was in the news not too long ago.

    There are very few Russian vodkas you can buy that are actually from Russia and Russian owned and imported here. A lot of em are just "marketing Russian" created in some plant in Baltimore or wherever

    The real question is did Russians forget where they were living? The secret police and mafia and energy conglomerate darlings like Gazprom still rule the roost and Putin himself will drive a fucking tank over soft over-ripened infant heads if he deems it necessary, without regard for what the U.N. or anyone else have to say about it. Difference these days is they've improved on doing it quietly

    I just found out this last weekend that the reason I've always had horrible headaches after getting hammered on Cuervo tequila is because it's fucking 40% vodka.

    Now that you know, drink a good non Russian vodka on the rocks and enjoy the headache free tomorrow!

    I seriously joined this ban on Russian Vodka movement because I buy (and drink) so much Vodka that I feel I am making a difference without actually having to march (or roller skate) with the gheys.

    Speaking of roller skating gheys, what happened to Mario? :bigthink

    They'll still put the bottles up their asses though. As a sign of protest. And to get drunk. And as a way of increasing the power of their orgasms.

    But mainly protest.
