Norway’s gay minister will be making a stand by taking his husband to Sochi Winter Games.
Bent Høie, the official representative for Norway at the Paralympics, announced he would be attending the event with his spouse today (4 February).
‘I cannot wait to watch and support all the Norwegian athletes,’ he said. ‘These are athletes with disabilities who perform at a very high level.’
Speaking to the Stavanger Aftenblad newspaper, Høie said it was normal for a cabinet official to travel with a spouse on such an official visit.
