Peru’s so Gay

The rainbow flag is the official flag of Cuzco. Apparently it may also hold additional meanings, from unity to religion. And of course, to us northern foreigners, it represents the rights of lesbian, bisexual, gay, and trans* people.

Right now Peru is in the middle of various political elections, and a few of the parties like to use this flag to represent themselves. Though the meaning may be different, it’s pretty awesome seeing strongly religious and conservative groups toting the rainbow flag.
