    Oslo - Norwegian homosexuals are set to launch their own soda brand, Homo Light, at an upcoming gastronomic festival, in the hope that it will help promote tolerance, one of the authors of the project has said.

    "The goal is not for us to make money, but to make us more visible and accepted," Oeystein Mauritzen said on Monday.

    Pear-flavoured and pink, "Homo Light" will go on sale as a one-time offer from a stand at a gastronomic festival in the south-western town of Stavanger between July 27 and 30.

    Along with the soda, which will be sold in half-litre bottles for 20 kroner (about R20), the group will sell rainbow-coloured pasta salads.

    Norway has allowed gay couples to form marriage-like partnerships since 1993 and its gay rights rank it as one of the world's most liberal countries.

    It is run by a coalition government whose members include Prime Minister Kjell Magne Bondevik, a Lutheran minister of the Christian Democratic Party who has come out strongly against the partnership law, and openly gay Finance Minister Per-Kristian Foss of the Conservative Party.
