Gay right activists around the world have called for boycott of Sochi Olympic Games for their intolerance of gays. The Russia's anti-gay laws were introduced in 2013 and are meant to punish any "gay propaganda". In reality, though, any "coming out" or any favorable public speaking about same-gender relationships is classified as gay propaganda in Russia and can get you in prison for up to 3 years. In other words, one can be gay in Russia but one can't speak about it or otherwise show his true colors in public. The Russia's gay intolerance was one of the reasons many heads of state (including Barack Obama and Angela Merkel) chose NOT to attend these games.
Before the beginning of Sochi Olympics Putin said that even gay athletes are welcome in Sochi as long as they "behave like normal people and don't emphasize their orientation". And, surprise, surprise... yesterday the first openly gay athlete - Dutch speedskater Ireen Wust - got the gold medal.
Photoshop how Sochi Olympics would be different if they totally embraced gay rights, welcomed openly gay athletes, and allowed any "gay propaganda".
President Barack Obama on Monday defended his view that gay couples should have the right to marry, saying that the country has never gone wrong when it "expanded rights and responsibilities to everybody."
"That doesn't weaken families. That strengthens families," he told gay and lesbian supporters and others at a fundraiser hosted by singer Ricky Martin and the LGBT Leadership Council. "It's the right thing to do."

Training for the repeal of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy that forbids gays from serving openly in the armed forces is going better than envisioned, commanders told Congress last Thursday. The repeal will take effect 60 days after President Obama, the secretary of defense and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff certify that it won't end up being detrimental to military operations to reverse the ban. Therefore, as soon as this fall, gays may be permitted to serve openly in the armed forces.
Since later this year gays will be allowed to serve openly in the military, and they won't have to hide "their colors", show how they may alter/decorate their uniform and weapons and use makeup to serve really "openly" from now on.
After growing pressure from the Republican clan, Senator Larry Craig of Idaho has resigned, after the recent arrest for trying to engage in a homosexual act in an airport bathroom. The arrest was done by an undercover police officer and Craig pleaded guilty in hopes that the case won't have to go to court and won't become public. However, as soon as the information was released to the public and caused a big scandal around the Republican senator, he changed his plead to "not guilty", stated that he is "not gay", was not involved in any indecent acts, and that his actions were misinterpreted.
Photoshop anything connected to the scandal around Senator Larry Craig. For example show magazine covers; or some evidence, documents, or photos that may shed more light to the story, or may prove whether he is gay or not. Remember to keep your entries safe for work.
