Ricky Martin and Fergie, along with Jonah Hill, Kristen Bell, Kevin Bacon and other celebs, kick off today’s launch of the HRC’s (Human Rights Campaign) latest crusade: Love Conquers Hate. The campaign is asking Americans to support Russia’s LGBT community and speak out against the human rights violations in that country.
To further spread the message, T-shirts emblazoned with the slogan “Love Conquers Hate” written in Russian have been designed. Celebrity supporters will wear the shirts and promote the campaign via social media platforms and HRC’s site, loveconquershate.org. In addition, 100% of the proceeds generated by sales of the shirts will go toward the fight for LGBT equality.
HRC is headed by president Chad Griffin. Additional celebrity supporters from music, film and other arenas will be announced in the near future.
