MagLove: To Russia with love

(This column was originally posted on, where MediaSlut has a regular slot)

Vladimir Putin. Russia. Olympics. What more needs to be said? Tons! And, of course, the media is all the way behind uncovering the injustice happening in Russia at the moment, especially towards its LGBT community… and that the Russians aren’t ready at all for the Sochi Winter Olympics that are starting… today!

This is a selection of (smart and creative) covers focusing on the Winter Olympics, Gay-rights and also Putin —  I’ll let the different covers talk for themselves. May the media keep fighting for people’s rights and not be silenced!

Reporters Without Borders, 2014 campaign

Reporters sans frontieres, Sotchi 2014

Note: this is not a magazine cover but branding for a campaign Reporters Without Borders started, and I just thought it so strong, it had to be included.

Read more about the campaign here.
