Russain Gay kiss

Kseniya Ryzhova and Tatyana Firova, two members of Russia’s women’s 4×400 relay team, stood up in  defiance of their own countries ban on “homosexual propaganda” when they kissed (to the surprise of their own teammates) on the podium during the awards of their gold medals at the World Track & Field Championships in Moscow.

These women Russian women have more guts, dignity, and bravery than Putin could ever imagine.–this law affects them and their families directly, and here is little doubt to what they are protesting,.

For them to make a statement like this is incredible gutsy move.

God bless them.
