Mother & Kaleidescope fight homophobia with Russian dolls

To Russia with Love

Mother and The Kaleidoscope Trust are sticking two fingers up at homophobia in Russia.


The Russian LGBT community is facing increasingly harsh treatment at the hands of authorities. Attacks on gay people are rising, in a country where homosexuality has been classified as a mental illness since 1999. So, this Christmas, Mother is sending something To Russia With Love.


The agency has created seven limited edition, hand-painted sets of Russian nesting dolls featuring artist’s renders of five gay British icons: Elton John, George Michael, Stephen Fry, Graham Norton and Tom Daly.


The dolls will be auctioned online at  www.torussiawithlove.co.uk between the 13th and 22nd of December to raise money for The Kaleidoscope Trust and their work with the Russian gay community.


Over Christmas, Mother will deliver a set of dolls to the Russian Embassy in London and The Kremlin as an act of solidarity with the gay community in Russia.


Bidding starts this Friday the 13th of December.  www.torussiawithlove.co.uk
