Am today shooting the documentary in Lima, Peru. Imagine my surprise when upon approaching the presidential palace in the middle of Lima I saw the gay flag colors flying next to the Peruvian flag atop the palace!
This just goes to show my myopic view and I was quickly told that this multi colored flag, colors of the rainbow, is the flag of the ancient area of the Incas, Tahuantinsuyo.

When he was elected in July, 2001, President Alejandro Toledo Manrriquez insisted on flying the indigenous flag alongside that of the republic of Peru.

It looks great.
