Another reason to love Spain

321552219_80_80

From the Restoring My Faith in Humanity Department comes this video produced by Spain’s State Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Transsexuals and Bisexuals, in which average, every day Spaniards advise a gay couple to stay elsewhere when they find homophobic threats in the directions they have been provided to their hostel.

Coming up for some air & a cappella
