In early March, activists in Berlin staged a “yarn bombing” on the Warschauer Bridge to raise awareness of LGBT rights. Participating “bombers” crafted an assortment of rainbows, hearts and knitted signs to convey positive, pro-gay messages. We think that’s pretty knifty. (Photo by distelfliege/Flickr.)
“I support my lesbian dog 100%.”
—Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, pledging support for his spoodle, Maisie, who is only attracted to other female dogs.
(OK, we wish he’d really said that. The statement was later revealed to be an April Fool’s Day prank by Same Same, Australia’s leading gay and lesbian lifestyle website. They added that the Maisie’s sexual orientation had not been officially disclosed. Nice one, Same Same!)
