Kudos to the Greek Winter Olympic team for showing their Russian hosts the proverbial middle finger with a bright, colorful response to the Russian bigotry towards gays and lesbians. The team that enters the stadium first— out of respect for its country’s role in creating the Olympics— showed where the Russians can put their hatred and intolerance.

The Greek national team donned their expected blue and white— with the addition of colorful rainbow gloves, showing their solidarity with their gay and lesbian fellow athletes. The rainbow, representing diversity in colors, is the official symbol of the gay and lesbian movement.
