LGBTQ activists from around the world gathered in Russia this weekend to protest Russia’s anti-gay policies.

The six activists, wearing colorful soccer jerseys from their home countries, created what they called a “hidden flag” as they walked side by side throughout Moscow.

The article goes on to state the following:

The jerseys from Spain, Holland, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, and Colombia together made up a rainbow, similar to the well-known LGBTQ pride flag.

The Hidden Flag project staged the protest this week because the world’s attention is focused heavily on Russia as the World Cup inches towards its final stages, according to their website.

Russia in 2013 passed a “gay propaganda” ban, making it illegal to promote a host of topics associated with LGBTQ+ rights, including the pride flag.

    Arrest them for trying to cause division. Or attempting to incite public disorder. I would say the charges should stick. And I am not antigay… Just pro law and believe in respecting the laws of whichever country you are a guest.
