Down and out in Sochi - Feeling the effects of Russia's gay "propaganda" ban

Memo to Russian President Vladimir Putin: When your country plays host to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, some of the athletes will be gay. Some might even be really gay. Watch as Blake Skjellerup, gay Olympic speed skater, talks about competing in Russia under the country's anti-gay laws. Foreigners could be fined, arrested or deported if they're charged under the purposely vague law.
