Gay Pride Still Banned For 100 Years In Moscow

MoscowPrideThere will not be another legal gay pride held in Moscow during our lifetimes. That is if Moscow's highest court has its way, because it ruled today that the city's 100 year ban on LGBT pride parades still stands. Prominent equality activist Nikolay Alexeyev, however, promises to continuing to fight for his and others' civil rights.

From BBC News:

[Alexeyev] had gone to court hoping to overturn the city council's ban on gay parades.

He had asked for the right to stage such parades for the next 100 years.
...
On Friday he said he would go back to the European Court in Strasbourg to push for a recognition that Moscow's ban on gay pride marches - past, present and future - was unjust.

The Moscow city government argues that the gay parade would risk causing public disorder and that most Muscovites do not support such an event.

Russia has been a hotbed of anti-LGBT discrimination as of late: St. Petersburg banned "homosexual propaganda", which includes vocal support of equality like Madonna's recent protest.

  3. Nikolay Alexeyev = HERO
    Pussy Riot = HERO

    Meanwhile Russia, with the help of the evil Rssian ORthodox church, tries to roll back time 500 years, with the help of ignorance and fear.

    Sending love to our people in Russia!

  5. This from a country where young drafted army recruits are routinely sexually assaulted and pimped out.

  6. Because Moscow lives in a world where laws are phrased in the form of fairytales, courts upheld that Pride will be banned there for a hundred years. I’ve never been more upset that gays don’t actually have supernatural powers, because nothing would round this out like a curse of bad crops for a hundred years. There’d be a prince and a kiss would break the spell or something too—this story’s about as well thought out as that law.

    In light of this announcement I've made some other predictions for the future year 2112: http://popingay.com/post/29635380780/the-future-in-2112-david-beckham-is-our-god-now

  12. The man who has made up his mind to win will never say "impossible". Our destiny offers not the cup of despair, but the chalice of opportunity.

  13. We are here to add what we can to life, not to get what we can from it. There is more than one way to skin a cat.

  14. Do not, for one repulse, give up the purpose that you resolved to effect. You have to believe in yourself. That's the secret of success.
