Swedes Sing Their Support for LGBT Russians at Stockholm's Olympic Stadium
By Out.com Editors
Back on October 6, 2013, Stockholm's Olympic Stadium filled with 2,000 people gathered to film a moving video showing both their opposition to Russia’s anti-LGBT legislation banning so-called gay propaganda, and their support of LGBT people around the world.
The short film, titled "Live And Let Love," features a diverse group of people from all walks of life, surrounded by rainbow flags, singing the Russian national anthem. The result is a powerful and inspirational reminder of the beauty inherent in both Russian and LGBT culture as we prepare for the kickoff of the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi on Friday, February 7.
The creative minds behind the short film are encouraging others to create their own rainbow version of the Russian National Anthem and share on social media under the hashtag #livendletlove. Sheet music and lyrics are available at www.liveandletlove.se.
