A new way of protesting Russia’s ambivalence toward its gay and lesbian citizens has now spread to Oslo, Norway. The Advocate reports:
An unknown activist has painted a crosswalk near the Russian embassy in Oslo to resemble a rainbow. A photograph of the colorful crossing in Norway’s capital began to make the rounds on social media, with many recognizing the political significance of the rainbow as an international symbol of LGBTQ rights.
I love these protests – which do this in front of every Russian Embassy around the world.
