Gay Travel: Russian Supreme Court Gives OK To Gay Pride ParadesRussia’s Supreme Court has ruled that gay pride parades and LGBT rights demonstrations do not violate controversial “gay propaganda” laws.

The court made the ruling in August, but it was not made public until this week, Russian news agency RIA Novosti reports. The case involved an antigay law passed by the Arkhangelsk Region’s legislature last year, but it apparently will apply to similar laws passed by the city of St. Petersburg and others. Several cities have declined to allow pride parades or other pro-gay demonstrations.
