Canadian Advert Protesting Against Russian Anti-Gay Law

This ad made by The Canadian Institute of Diversity and Inclusion is just begging for controversial Internet flame wars

The ad was made in response to a Russian law preventing the promotion of homosexuality to minors that passed last June. To some, it means banning any display of homosexuality whatsoever, and the LGBT community doesn’t take kindly to that. Considering that the Sochi Olympics open this week, a lot of attention is being drawn to this.

This ad is stirring up discussions about a couple of issues: gay rights, which has been a hot-button issue for a while now, and public display and protest. What constitutes “propaganda”, and when is it justifiable, if ever? I’m sure we’ll hear plenty about it.
