Greece was not making LGBT statement with gloves

Here is Greece coming out during the Olympic Ceremony. Many thought that the rainbow gloves the team members from Greece were wearing were  in support of the LGBT community, and against Russia’s anti-gay politcs.

Those many sources were way too quick to react.


Yeah, those are the official gloves of the Sochi Olympics. The fingers being the color of the rings. This was not a statement regarding Russia’s politics, unlike Cheryl Maas’s glove throw at the camera yesterday.
