Who wouldn't love a set of traditional Russian nesting dolls painted to look like famous gay icons? Probably not anybody working at the Kremlin. But officials there will still receive the novelty gift as a Christmas present this year meant to "stick two fingers up at homophobia in Russia."
For its holiday campaign titled, #ToRussiaWithLove, U.K.-based creative agency Mother London commissioned seven sets of the matryoshka dolls, each painted to look like a openly-gay celebrity, such as Elton John and Stephen Fry.
One set of the dolls will be sent to the Kremlin, and another to the Russian Consulate in London. The rest of the dolls are being auctioned off on eBay to raise money for Kaleidoscope Trust, a human rights organization dedicated to promoting LGBT equality worldwide.
Stephen Fry, who autographed one set of the nesting dolls scheduled for auction, recently tweeted about them:
Oh look, I fit snugly into Elton, and George Michael fits snugly into me.
Homophobia in Russia has become an increasing international concern since this summer when the country passed its anti-gay propaganda law, banning the promotion of any nonheterosexual relationship. As a result, human rights advocates have also had pointed criticisms for the International Olympic Committee for upholding its decision to stage the next Winter Olympics in the Russian city of Sochi.
This week, President Barack Obama made it known he would not attend the games, but would instead send a U.S. delegation that includes openly-gay athletes such as Billie Jean King and Brian Boitano.

Am I implying they're not normal?? You bet..
This should go over just about as well as the “Reset” button.
Oooohhh...it's simply faaabulous,Ducky!
Just another slap in the face to those who are sensible enough to oppose deviancy.
Outstanding article today in the Thinker about homosexual predation upon boys.
Why I Cannot Blame Russia and India for Taking on the Gays
By Robert Oscar Lopez
All my prepping will be for naught if I detect the scent of sulphur from above.
“famous gay icons?”
John Wayne Gacy?
Normally I can't stand the getups whacky homosexuals doll themselves up with, but you've gotta admit, from a strictly artistic point of view, this one is well done.
I was sort of surprised it wasn’t the White House that sent them....
That is the type of gift these classless grifters would send....
I was surprised, too. Obama is not very good at picking out presents.

A Tale of Two Giftings: Obama vs Bush
Confirmed: The Obamas are Tacky, Tasteless, and Cheap The gifting gaffes roll on. First you had a cheap set of American movie DVDs that couldn’t be played in England and now, when meeting the Queen of England,
Barack Obama’s gift for the Queen: an iPod, your Majesty Barack Obama met the Queen at Buckingham Palace today and gave her a gift of an iPod loaded with video footage and photographs of her 2007 visit to the United States. [but...] The Queen already has an iPod, a 6GB silver Mini version she bought in 2005 at the suggestion of Prince Andrew.
What is it with these two Clampets? We they born in a barn? This is getting embarrassing. What are they going to give the rulers of China? Taiwan or a poo-poo cushion?
A commenter at Ace says, “Wow, we were really lucky to get rid of that Texas hillbilly, and miss out on that Alaskan chick, huh?
Up next, his gift to Angela Merkel: copies of “The World at War” and “Schindler’s List” on DVD along with a first edition of “The Diary of Anne Frank”
UPDATE: What did the George and Laura Bush give to the Queen when she visited in
2007? Commenter Eric Blair has located this list a Raymond P. Martinez hosts Ask the White House
President and Mrs. Bush gave Her Majesty a bronze statuette High Desert Princess with a personal inscription on the bottom of the base. It is a replica of the original life size statue that is located in front of the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame in Ft. Worth, Texas.
President and Mrs. Bush gave The Prince Philip an exclusive sterling silver eagle box by Tiffany & Co. with personal inscription on the inside lid.
President and Mrs. Bush gave Their Majesties a leather presentation box filled with a collection of documents from the National Archives. One of the items was a copy of an original letter from President Roosevelt to her father, King George, written in 1938. There were also photos from previous royal visits and a DVD of the footage from the Queens visit to the United States when she was Princess Elizabeth in 1951.
I’m sure Her Majesty will put the Obama iPod in suitable place. No fair dumpster diving behind Buckingham Palace.
Gee that’s as exciting as a flat cola. Dumb. I thought the homosexuals were supposed to be so creative.
That fella is very talented with makeup.
“Signorile says this is “nurturing” and educational, kind of like being someone’s private tutor, only the tutelage involves lubricant, preparatory enemas, and the tearing of the boy’s rectal lining, all in the name of initiation. It’s also unsanitary, painful, and likely to interfere with whatever development the boy might have toward eventual sex with women.”

Waiting for the copy of this with pajamaboy face...
A picture comes to mind...
...a bulldozer in Red Square aimed at a line of matryoshka dolls.
1. I have this mental image of the first matryoshka doll set to nest, not inside each other, but front to back, front to back, front to back
2. If you let the gay community stick two fingers up at homophobia they’re eventually going to want to use the whole fist.
“Oh look, I fit snugly into Elton, and George Michael fits snugly into me.”
This is beyond sick.
They’ve just wasted a lot of money, which is funny. Why don’t these pretentious colonial dirtbags go to St. Petersburg and put on a parade? Too afraid? Let the nationalist mobs deal with them.
famous gay icons?
John Wayne Gacy?”
Dude going to dress like that he really needs to manscape. Doesn’t he know the rules!!
Oh my! - is it just me or does the biggest doll look just like pajama boy?
That company giving anything to a child is disgusting. They might get more than they bargained for when a not so PC or restrained parent sees it.
Further proof it’s not about anything but the need for attention.
Grandpa Walton actor, Will Greer’s extra special partner, Harry Hay (NAMBLA) once said every 14 year old boy needed a gay teacher. To think of those kids on The Waltons for all those years.
“Grandpa Walton actor, Will Greers extra special partner...”
What are you implying?
Why would you want to destroy an American icon?
Don’t believe me that Will Greer was gay? Do your own search and then get back to me.
“Sir, you’re sucking his elbow.”
Geer was a lifelong American Communist Party member, too.
Post 9 . Adolph Hitler and a gaggle of his original Socialist Labor Party insiders were butch homosexuals.
