They're representing the queer community within a harshly homophobic country.

Ikea's Face from the Cover competition allows store visitors to submit professional photos in hopes of landed a catalogue cover. After voting took place, a gay Russian couple won the contest with over 7,000 votes--a 6,00 lead over second place, reports Telegraph.

Though Russia has a troubling stance on LBGTQ rights, an Ikea Russia spokesperson gave Gay Star News an inspiring statement:

'We at Ikea are for the many. We welcome anybody regardless of their age, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical ability, ethnicity, race, nationality, religion, marital or family status, or any other dimension of their identity. In the contest, as in any activities promoted by Ikea, the very same non-discriminating principles apply."
