St. Petersburg LGBT rally ends with the usual traditional arrests – photos
YESTERDAY, anti-gay protesters gather to confront an authorized gay rights rally in St. Petersburg, Russia.

The city government had sanctioned the rally despite the Russian government’s June passage of a contentious law outlawing gay “propaganda”.
People from both sides were arrested.
