Designer Kristof Buntinx is appalled at the treatment of gay people in Russia that he felt moved to take a stand. 'If you do not like the fact that I am homosexual, I can learn to live with it. But to humiliate, attack and torture people is really going too far', he wrote in an open letter on his website.
The designer decided to create men’s boxers that poke fun at the Russian government and it's anti-gay laws by blending the LGBT rainbow with Russian symbol. The underwears are just the beginning for Buntinx. For his "To Russia With Love" campaign, Buntinx is teaming up with photographer Herman Van Gestel to create a calendar of men in the boxers. The calendar is due for release in September.
Check out a behind the scenes video of the calendar shoot by photographer Herman Van Gestel after the jump.

Google employee Shaun Aukland had all his colleagues from his London office help him propose to his boyfriend, Michael.
On April 22 2013, I invited Michael to lunch at the Google office. He had no idea I would be asking him to marry me. Or that hundreds of people were in on it.
We are a binational couple, separated for the last two years, on and off, without the ability to sponsor Michael for citizenship in the United States because of the Defense of Marriage Act. I flew to London for one of our regular trips and secretly to propose to Michael, in hopes that he'll be able to finally join me permanently in the US after the Supreme Court decision.
Five minutes before the proposal, all of the TV screens in the cafe showed a timer countdown. At about 10 seconds, Michael remarked "its really busy in here. also, what is that timer". Then the video starts.Watch Shaun's sweet proposal after the jump.
