    According to the Youtube description, the activists arrested were Alekseev, Aleksei Kiselev, and Kirill Nepomniashchii.

    Alekseev’s retirement appears to have been short-lived.

    And this is not the first pro-gay protest on Red Square. That happened back in the ’70s sometime when an Italian man went there with a banner about the Soviet sodomy law and was arrested.

    These are amazing and brave people. You can friend them on facebook. I think they might be able to use our support. I came out in teh 1970’s. It was not easy, but it sure was not this bad.
