The fight to change Russia’s “gay propaganda” laws continues to grow with the help of British indie-pop band Autoheart. The band’s July 15th album release, Punch, features the single “Moscow.” The song is about “daft optimism of being in love” in the  city with lyrics “Beauty’s in the eye of the beholder, You have lips that permanently smolder, When in Moscow I just want to fold you up, And keep you warm.” Russian soldiers make frequent appearances in their retro-styled video and end the video by sharing a loving kiss while surrounded by blooming flowers. “We are lucky in Britain to have laws that mean whether we are gay, straight, bisexual, or anything in between, our relationships are recognized and our rights protected by law. But in Russia there is an anti-gay crisis happening right now: their government does not want to afford their people those same rights and are trying to criminalize even the discussion of gay equality,”  the band stated about their new release.
