Openly gay Broadway star weighs in:

Tony Award-winning actor, playwright, and LGBT activist Harvey Fierstein is urging people to boycott the Winter Olympics in Russia because of Vladimir Putin‘s anti-gay laws that essentially make anything LGBT a crime.
“It’s time to start paying attention to what’s going on in Russia in case you haven’t yet,” Fierstein said in a recent Facebook post.
