President Barack Obama will meet with gay rights activist during this week's Group of 20 summit in Russia.

Igor Kochetkov of LGBT Network told the AP that his group will accept an invitation to meet with the president in St. Petersburg on Thursday. A second organization, Coming Out, said that it has yet to decide whether to attend the meeting.

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law which prohibits the promotion of “gay propaganda” to minors, effectively outlawing Gay Pride marches and similar demonstrations of support for LGBT rights. The law has provoked worldwide outrage and calls for a boycott of the Winter Olympics to be held in Sochi.

Obama has previously weighed in against the law. However, the president called a boycott “not appropriate.”

Obama canceled planned meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin before the G20 summit in response to Russia's decision to grant temporary asylum to Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor who leaked details about the agency's surveillance programs.
