Reykjavik Mayor Dons Dress, Balaclava to Support Pussy Riot

The Moscow Times

Reykjavik Mayor Jon Gnarr atop a van decorated with the words 'Free Pussy Riot' during the city's yearly gay-pride festival.

Reykjavik Mayor Jon Gnarr rode through the streets of the Icelandic capital in a bright pink dress and matching balaclava to add his voice to calls to free three Pussy Riot rockers facing seven years in a Russian jail for an anti-government performance.

In a brief video posted on YouTube, Gnarr is seen waving his arms atop a van decorated with the words "Free Pussy Riot." One of the group's songs, "Clear the Cobblestones," a likely reference to Red Square, can be heard playing from speakers mounted on the van.

Gnarr, formerly an actor and comedian, made the gesture Saturday during Rekyavik's yearly gay-pride festival, which ran Aug. 7 to 12.
