2000 Swedes sing an inclusive Russian national anthem (great video)

Quite a touching video out of Stockholm, Sweden. 2,000 Swedes got together to sing a gay-inclusive version of the Russian national anthem in honor of the 2014 Winter Olympics taking place in Sochi, Russia in a little more than a week.

It’s just really a lovely video.

    Now THAT’S a country, Sweden, a person can be proud of! Poor, ignorant Russia! How they must hate themselves. Pray for them daily… hourly!

  • It’s YouTube, what’s depressingly high over here is actually a good day over there. Amazing how hateful a community there is over there.

    Nicely done video. Too bad there’s a depressingly higher than normal proportion of ignorant haters and trolls among the youtube commenters. :/

    No, you’re not anal. Super majority of people don’t realize damage and harm done when releasing something like balloons. We dump tons and tons of garbage into air, oceans and lands.

  • I love Sweden

    by releasing a balloon near an ocean sea creatures like turtles will eat it thinking it is food and choke to death, i know i’m anal but all species deserve our respect and consideration.
