These little nesting dolls aren't just adorable and funny, they're actually a form of gay rights protest against Russia's homophobic laws. The issue of anti-gay sentiment is Russia is a very serious issue with many complexities, catching the attention of countries around the world. 'Mother London' has decided to take a cheeky and light-hearted approach to changing minds and making a statement.

This comes in the form of nesting dolls, a traditional Russian toy. Instead of ladies in babushkas, the set of five dolls are each painted like a different gay icon. There is Elton John, Stephen Fry, George Michael, Graham Nortan and Tom Delay. This is a tongue-in-cheek way to approach a serious issue, and will likely delight while making a statement.
