Pence and Wife Received a Complete Gay Rainbow Reception by Iceland's President







Guðni Jóhannessonthrew some Prideful hints towards Pence, wearing a rainbow bracelet while shaking Pence’s hand. His wife, Iceland’s first lady Eliza Reid, was also reportedly wearing a bracelet when she greeted Pence.


Vice President Mike Pence's political brand is one of a devout Christian who has a long history of supporting anti-LGBTQ policies. Because for some bizarre reason, people are concerned about what people do in the privacy of their own bedroom.
He opposed the bill that allows gays to serve in the military. He spoke at the openly anti-LGBTQ Family Research Council's annual conference in 2018, and as Governor of Indiana, signed a bill into law that allowed people to discriminate against the LGBTQ community under the guise of religious freedom.
He obviously missed the part of the Bible that says "love thy neighbor."

On Wednesday, Pence became the first American Vice President to visit Iceland, a country of just 350,000 people, since George H.W. Bush went to Reykjavík in 1983.
Iceland is one of the most pro-LGBTQ countries in the world. It allows any two people to marry regardless of sex or gender and the Church of Iceland also allows same-sex marriage in its churches. Clearly, Mike Pence would not be a member of this church.
Over 20 years ago, Iceland made it illegal to refuse people, goods, or services on account of their sexual orientation, or to attack a person or group of people publicly with mockery, defamation, abuse, or threats because of their sexual orientation.
The U.S. still doesn't have any such law on the federal books. If it did, Mike Pence would probably try to have it repealed.
When Pence arrived in Iceland, he was greeted by a barrage of LGBTQ pride flags being flown at the Höfði House where he met with Iceland's president, Guðni Jóhannesson.
The Höfði House is best known as the location of the 1986 Reykjavík Summit meeting of presidents Ronald Reagan of the United States and Mikhail Gorbachev of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. That effectively was a step to the end of the Cold War.

Within the building, the flags of the United States and the Soviet Union are cross-hung to commemorate the meeting.
An office park opposite the historic building also decided to fly rainbow flags for the occasion as well. "We just felt the need to celebrate diversity today and wanted to show that by flying the flags," Ægir Már Þórisson, the company's director, said according to The Guardian.

so at his stop at Höfði (house where Reagan-Gorbachev summit in Reykjavík occurred), @vp was met by this not-so-subtle display and then the mayor said he grieved the loss of the INF treaty that emerged from the summit but was recently withdrawn from by the trump administration

When Pence met with Jóhannesson, the president was wearing a rainbow bracelet, just like he wore when he met with another massive homophobe, Vladimir Putin of Russia.
