Mother is auctioning a set of gay Russian nesting dolls including Elton John and Stephen Fry to raise awareness and money for the rights of LGBT people.

Mother London is launching a set of five Russian nesting dolls in the likeness of Elton John, Stephen Fry, George Michael, Graham Norton and Tom Daley.

They aim to raise awareness of the harsh treatment LGBT people are facing in Russia and raise money for The Kaleidoscope Trust who are working to uphold the rights of LGBT people internationally.

Seven of these limited edition, hand painted sets will be auctioned off at To Russia With Love starting tomorrow. The Russian embassy in London and The Kremlin will also get one each for Christmas.
