As part of Sweden's "Live and Let Love" campaign, 2,000 people gathered in Stockholm to show their support for Russian LGBTs by singing the national anthem of Russia surrounded by lots and lots of gay 'propaganda'.

Here's what the crosswalk outside the Russian Embassy in Stockholm, Sweden looks like today, via Street Art Utopia.
The Local reports:
Gay rights supporters have painted the zebra crossing outside the Russian embassy in Stockholm in the colours of the rainbow following angry exchanges during last week's Pride festival over the country's treatment of LGBT individuals. Stockholm police have been in regular contact with the Russian headquarters since the earlier manifestations but were unaware of the latest incident.
"We have no case on it but probably it is classed as vandalism or a violation of traffic regulations," Ulf Lindgren of Stockholm police told Dagens Nyheter.
He added that the police are not responsible for restoring the walkway to its regular pattern of black and white.
"Protesting is one thing, it has to be done. But this is wrong even if the objective is something else. It can affect people who are using the zebra crossing. There's a risk it can create danger for those using the crossing as they should look a certain way. It's confusing if they are different," added Lundgren.
On Saturday a group of naked men marched back and forth across the rainbow crossing outside the embassy. One of the group took pictures but it remains unclear if they are connected with the stunt.
A Swedish woman stole a commuter train and rammed it into the side of a building in a Stockholm suburb, injuring only herself in the process, the AP reports:
The motives of the woman, who worked for a company contracted to carry out cleaning for the train operator, were not immediately clear.
"We have only heard good things about her. We're investigating how this could happen, and why she did what she did," Hedenius said.
He said it's unclear how she got the keys to the train, but added that driving it is not that complicated.
