Last fall, fierce figure skating god Johnny Weir premiered his documentary To Russia With Love, and it’s now nominated for a GLAAD Media Award (congrats, Johnny!). The film follows three out athletes—hello, Blake Skjellerup—on their journey to last year’s Sochi Olympics, and it is a sobering look into gay life in Russia. Featuring commentary from Olympians Greg Louganis, Mark Tewksbury, Billie Jean King, and, of course, Johnny Weir himself, this documentary reminds us that though Sochi is long over, the fight for LGBT rights is just getting started.

Stream ‘To Russia With Love’ on EpixHD or Netflix, and be sure to keep your fingers crossed for the GLAAD Awards!
