Donal Óg Cusack has travelled to Russia to protest at the government’s anti-gay “propaganda” laws.

The former Cork hurler took to the streets of Moscow yesterday to lend his support to the movement and tweeted a picture of a pile of paper lovehearts which he distributed in the streets.

He tweeted that he is joined by “brave young Russians” in handing out the hearts, which bear the slogans “Love Has No Gender” and “Love Is Stronger Than Hate”.

The first openly gay GAA inter-county star, the Cork native has been critical of the situation in Russia.

Last year, Russia banned the promotion of “non-traditional” sexuality which makes providing information on homosexuality to under 18-year-olds illegal.

Russia has also banned adoptions by single people from countries where same-sex marriage is legal, regardless of the prospective parent's sexual orientation and comes into law in the middle of the Winter Olympics.
