In honor of this year's EuroPride celebration, transgender model Valentijn De Hingh posed for photographer Pieter Henket in a huge, Mattijs van Bergen-designed dress that has the Internet absolutely agog.
Made from the flags of the 72 different countries that have anti-LGBTQ legislation, De Hingh wrote on Instagram that the hope is that one day this dress will only have one pattern, as "every country that changes its legislation will have its flag replaced by a rainbow flag."
Absolutely stunning -- take a look at the giant garment below.
That little lady wearing the big dress is me. @mattijs_van_bergen designed this dress made of 72 flags, representing the 72 countries where homosexuality is still outlawed. Every country that changes its legislation will have its flag replaced by a rainbow flag. Let's hope this dress will represent a patchwork of rainbows sooner rather than later! 🌈 BIG THANKS TO @mattijs_van_bergen @pieterhenket & @rijksmuseum ❤️❤️❤️ #EUROPRIDE #europride2016 #ambassador #coc
