British Embassy Salutes Riga Gay Pride

Probably for the first time ever, a foreign embassy saluted a national gay pride march by flying the rainbow flag.
Gay rights are far from accepted in Latvia, which makes the action of British Ambassador Richard Moon all the more significant.
Ambassadors from the UK, Holland, Sweden and Denmark attended Pride events.
The UK Foreign Secretary is considering a request from Green MEP Carolyn Lucas, that all British embasies and consulates should fly the rainbow flag whenever a city has a Pride day.
