We are Unstoppable!

Eurovision 2014 is over and the Queen of Europe was crowned (see below) with a clear message to Putin and people like him that you can’t get the queer out of Europe. Sweden came in 3rd, Norway should have gotten a few more points, Poland was quite interesting and Italy gave us an Empress Rome can be proud of ;) Let us know in the comments who you were rooting for!

Live and Let Love

Last October, there was the heartwarming story of 2,000 Swedes who gathered in the Olympic Stadium of Stockholm to sing the Russian national anthem in a statement of solidarity with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Russians. Called "Live and Let Love," the final video of the event is now here and just in time for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.

LIVE AND LET LOVE – Russian National Anthem

"For many Russians the song has been a symbol of oppression," organizers of the event said in a statement. "However, the lyrics of the song were changed in year 2000 and in 2009 a poll showed that 56 percent of respondents felt proud when hearing the anthem, and that 81 percent liked it. Still, there are many people in Russia who are not able to sing the song with pride, among them many millions of LGBT people. It is their anthem too, but the state is criminalizing their lives."
