So as a reaction to the recently passed anti-gay laws, Russian gay rights activists have taken various Soviet propaganda posters and adapted them into pride posters instead.
Mostly they did this just by putting rainbow flags everywhere.
But I gotta say, a lot of the original Soviet propaganda posters were pretty damn gay already.
These are unedited Sino-Soviet propaganda posters. With their insistent and repetitive slogans of “Always together!” and “Friends forever!” and the aggressive hand-holding and hugging, I gotta say the Russian and Chinese guys in these posters seem like quite the committed couple.
They have kids and everything! Lookit their little blended family.
They love working together, relaxing together, and reading the works of Lenin to each other. On weekends they garden in their matching overalls.
Rainbow flags would almost be superfluous.
