So, it looks like we won’t be boycotting the upcoming 2014 Sochi Olympics. Bummer. But, why would we? With all that gender-segregated, celebration of the different aspects of the human body, the Olympics are already very, very, gay.
So I’ve been thinking, we need to come up with a universally recognized gesture that symbolizes support for LGBT people, in Russia, and around the world. Something that athletes can do at the games if they want to show support for us in a non-verbal way. A “Queer Salute” if you will. Something we can also use once the games are over too.
So, I`m holding a poll on the subject. And, in no particular order, here are some potential choices:
OPTION-A ” LIMP-WRISTED “
OPTION-B, ” I heart PINK TRIANGLE “
OPTION-C Sign Language for the “G”
A write-in suggestions with a certain flair.
OPTION-D The Japanese gesture
Another stylish write-in option.
OPTION-E The Write-in. You send your sketch or pic, with the title of your pose to: email@example.com
So yeah, here’s the poll, you just need to click to vote! ^_^
The poll is opened until January 9th 2014, and the write-in suggestions will be updated, ideally, or a regular basis. Well, vote away! And be sure to ”share” and “like” accordingly. Peace! ^_^
NATNOTE: The models were rendered as art-store mannequins in a vague effort to keep it gender-neutral. And in a spirit of transparency I want to mention I voted for option B… :)
