Russia pride parade banned 05 17 11

A Russian gay rights activist holds a banner reading 'Homophobia - disgrace of a country' during the gay pride protest, near the Hermitage Museum, in Saint Petersburg on June 26, 2010. Five gay rights activists were arrested today during the protest. Using similar tactics to a gay rights protest in Moscow last month, the protestors tried to outwit the security forces by only revealing the location of the demonstration at the last moment.
