UK: Manchester Pride in Solidarity With Sister City St. Petersburg

Published Date Author: , August 26th, 2012

The thousands who attend Manchester Pride this weekend are being urged to use the event to send a message of solidarity to LGBT people in its sister city of St Petersburg.

Earlier this year, the local government of St Petersburg introduced tough laws banning the “promotion” of homosexuality. In effect this makes illegal any public information, rallies, marches or displays of homosexuality.

More recently, a century-long ban on gay pride parades in Moscow was upheld, too.
