Gentlemen Against Homophobia: German Male Celebs Kiss Against Russian Hate

The German edition of GQ Magazine has launched a campaign in which straight male celebrities kiss in protest against Russia's campaign against its LGBT citizens. Gay Star News reports:
Lifestyle monthly GQ, generally known for advertising fast cars and hot women to its readers, launched the Gentlemen Against Homophobia campaign. 13 celebrities puckered up for the pics. While relatively unknown outside of the country, they included actor August Diehl, the band Revolverheld and singer Herbert Grönemeyet. Six incredible photos were produced, aiming to be published all over Germany on buses, posters and billboards. ‘The intolerance that homosexuals are still fighting against is shocking,’ Editor-in-Chief José Redondo-Vega said. ‘With #Mundpropaganda we wanted to give a clear sign in favor of a free society.’
Here is the magazine's making-of video.
