I'm an Olympics lover and I've been watching the Winter Games since 1998 at Nagano in Japan, but this year I'm giving the Sochi Games a miss because I strongly disagree with Russia's anti-gay laws.

I know some of you may think it's silly for me to boycott watching the Olympics, as if it'll make a difference to the homophobia in Russia, but after watching Hunted, a shocking documentary on Channel 4 revealing the extent and prevalence of homophobic hate crimes in Russia, it makes me so angry and sad about how the Russians use excuses like 'traditional value' and 'paedophilia' to discriminate and ill-treat gay people. Honestly, SHAME ON YOU PUTIN!
