Russian designer, Kristoff Buntinx, is launching a new line of boxer underwear to protest Russia’s homophobic laws that essentially make being gay illegal. His designs blend the LGBT rainbow with Russian symbols as a way to poke fun at the laws and allow Russians a private way to protest laws without risking jail sentences.
Called “From Russia With Love”, Buntix is now working with photographer Herman Van Gestel to create a gay themed calendar of men in the boxers that they hope to release in late September.
