Courtney's Act of kindness: To Russia with Love video release

LAST UPDATED // Thursday, 20 February 2014 15:19 Written by // Sabine Brix

Drag superstar Courtney Act has released her new videoclip 'To Russia with Love' to reinforce a message of positivity and acceptance.

The up-tempo pop ballad is timely in that it was originally released as a single on Valentines Day and also coincides with the Sochi Olympics.

Dressed in Soviet drag and featuring an affectionate gay couple, Act's message is simple and to the point.

"We cannot solve problems with blame or anger. But we can use the contrast that Putin’s draconian laws have created as an example of what we don’t want, which allows us to more strongly focus on what we do want."

The single is the first in four years for the performer, whose last offering was 'Welcome to Disgraceland.'

Courtney Act performs in Boys Like Me at Sydney Theatre 25 Feb as part of Mardi Gras. Tickets here
