Norway's openly gay health minister said it's only natural that he bring his husband to the Paralympic games with him in Sochi, Russia.

Norway's openly gay health minister said he plans to bring his husband to the Paralympic games in Sochi, Russia, in the face of that country's anti-LGBT laws and homophobic environment.

Health Minister Bent Hoie said he would naturally take his husband, Dag Terje Solvang, an advertising executive, with him to the games.

"That said, everyone understands what two men who are married think about gay rights," he said according to UPI.

Bard Nylund, of the Norwegian LGBT Association, called on Hoie to become even more vocal in the lead-up to his trip to the Paralympic games, which follow the Olympic games.

"He should say something explicitly to his Russian colleagues, if he gets the opportunity during his visit in Sochi," Nylund suggested.
