More Lawsuits In Moscow Pride Ban

Gay activists are again taking the Moscow city government to the European Court of Human Rights. The complaint – which asks for about $1.5 million in compensation – says Moscow officials violated the gays’ equal rights when they banned an annual gay pride celebration. The event went on anyway, with bloody results. This isn’t the first time Moscow’s faced such charges, of course – a similar 2006 lawsuit is still on the docket. [UK Gay News]
