(Blogmensgo, June 2, 2012) Moscow police have dispersed on May 27, 2012, two attempts at gay pride by challenging forty participants.

The two LGBT processions stood respectively at the Town Hall and Parliament. The city of Moscow had banned the holding of a Gay Pride. Like last year and for the seventh consecutive year since 2006. The ban was motivated by the risk of disturbing public order and arrests were made ​​to prevent opposing blocs (LGBT and ultra-Orthodox) from competing.

Several participants in the aborted Gay Pride were molested by the anti-gay protestors before the intervention of the police forces. Moscow does not specifically prohibit the homosexuality, but the LGBT parades are not tolerated in St. Petersburg. The ancient Russian capital, for its part passed a law making "homosexual propaganda" a crime.
