In 1/3 of the world’s countries, it is an offense to be bi or gay, in 7 countries there is deathpenalty!
The whole opening ceremony will be a manifestation of love in which we celebrate and insist upon the right to be our selves.
LGBT community is one of many minorities who insist on the right to poke outside the norm, the right to be them selves, right to be ME.
