As you may have heard, the Winter Olympics in Sochi are still going on as of this writing despite the controversy surrounding it. The largest controversy is the fact that the Russian government has recently passed some really vicious anti-gay laws under the guise of “protecting the children.”

During the warm-up show prior to the Opening Ceremonies of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, a Russian pop duo known as t.A.T.u. performed. This group was an eye-opener because during the last decade, t.A.T.u. first gained fame and notoriety for their song and video “All The Things She Said”, which was about a lesbian relationship.

In addition, the two members claimed publicly that they were lesbians, although it was later revealed that they only pretended to be a lesbian couple and they were actually heterosexual in real life.

At the warm-up show, t.A.T.u. performed the song “Not Gonna Get Us”, which was originally the group’s second single.

The two singers even held hands while they performed the song, which is provocative given the current hostile climate against the L/G/B/T community in Russia.
