British Actress Tilda Swinton Supports LGBT in Moscow

British actress Tilda Swinton raised a rainbow flag in front of the Kremlin to show solidarity with the LGBT community on Friday, July 5.

      A photograph of her unfurling the flag, with Moscow’s iconic St. Basil’s Cathedral in the background, was reportedly released by publicist Christian Hodell. In his Twitter he said: “Please share this message from Tilda: ‘In solidarity. From Russia with love,’”

      The Oscar winner's stand comes shortly after Russia has enacted a law banning ‘gay propaganda’, which has already provoked international outcry as a clampdown on homosexuals. The law’s vague wording may enable individuals to be implicated for even telling children that gay people exist.

      The star of numerous films, Swinton notably played the mother of a gay son in “The Deep End” and the estranged wife of a former US intelligence official whose memoir is leaked to the Russians in “Burn After Reading.” In 2007 she received the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in "Michael Clayton".
