I know two posts from me in one day is a bit much.:) I couldn’t resist posting this video, snagged from pushkin666


The Vancouver mayor is not going to the Olympics, but rather has sent two of the council members, both are gay, and have already met with the IOC. Vancouver hosted the first Pride House at the Olympics here, and would very much like to see that become a tradition at future Olympics. I thought that was a good way to make a statement.


Now this video from Sweden, where 2,000 gathered in the Olympic Stadium in Stockholm to send a message of support to the Russian LGBT community, by singing the Russian Nation Anthem, surrounded by rainbow flags. It certainly sends a great message.

I don't usually read the Province, but today someone in the office had a copy of it and I saw the story about Tim Stevenson going to a drag show in Sochi. Very interesting.

Like you, I don't read the Province, but I did read this. Maureen Douglas was with him, at least I think that is her on the dance floor. As you say it is interesting. I heard on the news that the meeting with the IOC went as well as it could given the circumstances.

I worry about those residents in Sochi, who are speaking out, not just now, but after everyone else leaves.

Most of the Canadian cities are flying the rainbow flag for the two weeks of the Olympics. I gather a number of countries have made statements in different ways. I like that.:)
