Boo! Moscow Pride Parade Canceled!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GaySad SadLGBT


Ugh! So unfortunate!

A gay pride parade has once again been denied in Moscow, Russia.

Organizers thought they would be granted a permit for the parade after homophobic mayor Yuri Luzhkov was fired in September, but sadly the new mayor, Sergei Sobyanin, has followed in his predecessor's footsteps.

Gay activists received a letter from city officials this past Tuesday, the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, denying a permit in fear the event will spark "civil unrest"

Activist Nikolai Alekseyev commented on the letter, saying:

"I don't think it was premeditated, it's simply a coincidence, but this coincidence is nonetheless symbolic. As events are held around the world — including at an official level — to mark the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, Russia pursues its caveman, primitive policy of bans."

Primitive is an understatement! How about oppressive?

However, equality can not be beaten with a permit though and Nikolai says he still plans on holding a pride event. Good luck over there! Hope it's a blast!

    Nothing to be proud about when you dress and act like sex crazed ignorant fools.

    You are so stupid Perez. It's for the best for them. In Russia everyone would just laugh at them and it's pretty dangerous. Fools would get beat up.

    I doubt it has anything to do with being gay. No one really cares anymore who you want to fuck. But I bet it has everything to do with them not wanting a bunch of FREAKS gathering in the streets for the day. You know, like the people in that picture above or people running around with leather masks and ball gags and thongs.

    I'm probably in the minority here but I really don't see why gay people feel that need to have a pride parade. What's there to be proud of? You didn't chose it or work for it? It's just who you are. And these parades are terribly stereotypical. And before people jump on the 'homophobe' train. I'm gay, so…. yeah!

    I would agree that in Moscow it is probably for the best that they do not. It will get violent and they will just get hurt. Is it worth it?
