A group of LGBT activists have scheduled a gay pride parade in Moscow on May 27.
Ria Novosti reports:
Gay activists plan to hold a gay pride parade in Moscow on May 27, where the main theme of the event will be bans on “gay propaganda” in Russia, the leader of the Russian LGBT movement, Nikolai Alekseyev, said.
It is the seventh year in a row that organizers have filed for permission to hold a gay pride march and demonstration in Moscow. Past applications have always been rejected.
As for the time and place of this year’s event, Alekseyev said: “Everything will depend on the government’s decision.”
The parade organizers will not insist on a specific venue and are ready to discuss alternatives, he said.
“If the Moscow authorities do not offer us anything, we will hold the parade without an agreement and file a complaint with the European Court of Human Rights.”
