 |

Six activists made Moscow a little gayer using some creativity. The activists from Spain, The Netherlands, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and Colombia joined together using soccer shirts, standing side-by-side in the color of the pride flag to protest Russia’s “homosexual propaganda” ban. “Unfortunately, 40 years later, there are still countries in which homosexuality is persecuted, sometimes even by jail sentences, and in which the rainbow flag is forbidden. Russia is one of these countries,” the activists said through their “The Hidden Flag” project page.
