Celebrity fashion designs for pro-gay charity UK

Gay is hot. Ever since Russia’s president Putin signed new controversial laws against being LGTB (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) in Russia, it seems the rest of the world, as a counter effect, is becoming more pro-gay by the minute.
What’s happening in Russia is an ugly thing, but the rest of world is shining with beauty in our fierce vocalization of disapproval.

Tilda Swinton risking imprisonment in Moscow

Celebrities from all over the world have showed their anger and raised their voice against the Russian law in different inspiring ways; Tilda Swinton risked her freedom by taking a picture with a gay flag in Moskow, Stephen Fry inspired us to think about boycotting the Olympics in his moving and viral open letter to David Cameron and the IOC, hearts were breaking when Wentworth Miller (star of the drama series Prison Break) came out in protest against the law, declining an invitation for a film festival hosted in St. Petersburg – now models and musical stars have taken on a fashionable stand to support Stonewall, a lesbian, gay and bisexual charity in the UK.

Celebrities such as Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Kylie Minogue, and Elton John use Adidas’ celebrated tennis trainer, the Stan Smith, as a blank canvas, creating one-off pieces of art that will be auctioned and then briefly exhibited, to raise money and awareness for the UK’s Lesbian, Gay & Bi-sexual equality charity Stonewall in collaboration with Platform Six.

The results will be on display at the Bargehouse in London from today until September 14th so if you’re in London, check them out!

Check out the Stonewall website, Twitter and Facebook for more information.
