    Rainbow Flag Will Fly Over Montreal City Hall During Olympics

    The cities of St. John's, Quebec City, and Montreal will fly the rainbow LGBT flag to protest the treatment of gays in Russia for the duration of the Olympics in Sochi.

    MONTREAL The rainbow flag will fly over city hall in Old Montreal for the duration of the Winter Olympics.

    Mayor Denis Coderre has confirmed that like other Canadian cities, Montreal will fly the flag.

    The local LGBT community is hailing this as a positive note of protest against the oppressive and discriminatory practices against gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people in Russia, where the games are being held.
    This article can be found at the Montreal Gazette.

    I hope more cities will choose to protest the anti-gay laws in Russia by doing this. Hopefully we can get more Canadian cities to do it as well as some American cities. Do you think that your/nearest city would raise the LGBT flag?

    Awesome! It's a wonderful gesture.

    Though, I'd love to see some rainbow flags during the Parade of Nations.

    I doubt Russia would arrest any athlete for breaking that obscene law. It would just tarnish them in a way they don't want.

    Never say never. People disappear in Russia for much less on a daily basis. Even Billy Jean King isn't going over there now (although her mother IS sick),

    I would also assume that the various agents from each country would prevent that from happening.

    When their personal life is dragged into the political and legal realm, sure. It's an entirely natural reaction.

    Not really this time. It's more about who they're allowed to love, and less about sex.
