Gay bars across the country are doing away with Stolichnaya vodka, for the time being, in reaction to a slew of recent anti-gay legislation in Russia. As a gesture of protest, boycotters in West Hollywood even plan to empty Stoli bottles, filled with water, into a gutter Thursday. The boycott began, in large part, because Dan Savage, who forever changed Rick Santorum's reputation on Google, encouraged it in a blog post as a way to show solidarity with Russia's LGBT and allied communities and to bring international attention to their harassment.
