Russian Gay Pride March Turns Violent

Russia’s Gay Pride March in St. Petersburg turned violent on Saturday when anti-gay protesters attacked activists, with several dozen arrested—but because “gay propaganda” is illegal. Officials in St. Petersburg deemed the march illegal, since spreading “homosexual propaganda" is prohibited under the country's laws. The anti-gay-marriage protesters threw rocks and eggs at the marchers and yelled slogans like “Sodomy will not pass.” Only eight anti-gay protesters were arrested out of dozens, according to a law-enforcement source.
