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 rally ended in scuffles after several dozen demonstrators were confronted by about 200 conservative and religious protesters. 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.
