Legowelt, Hieroglyphic Being, Huerco S., and More Support Russian LGBT Rights on New Comp
- Words: Leo Maymind
Russia's human and civil rights for its LGBT community have long been outdated and discriminatory, and with President Putin signing a federal law banning "homosexual propaganda" back in June, things have only gotten worse. Many in the music world have stood up and voiced their outrage, including a new collective called LGBT Rights for Russia Now, who have released a 24-track compilation to raise money and awareness for GayRussia, organizers of the Gay Pride parade in Moscow and one of the few LGBT rights organizations in Russia. Featuring exclusive tracks from a range of left-field techno producers—including Legowelt, Hieroglyphic Being, Huerco S. (pictured above), Perc, Kink & Neville Watson, Truss, and more—the compilation is now available to purchase exclusively from LGBT Rights for Russia's Bandcamp, and can be streamed below.
