WASHINGTON — Sixty-two members of Congress on Tuesday urged Ukrainian lawmakers to reject two bills that would ban the distribution of gay-specific information and materials in public gatherings and the media.

“These proposals are a chilling threat to not only the LGBT community, but all Ukrainian citizens who deserve to live in a society where the fundamental rights of speech, expression, peaceful assembly and equality are protected,” New York Congressman Joe Crowley said.
