moscow pride
25.05-27.05
moscow, russia
last year christian fundamendalists, fascists, neo-nazis and deranged babushkas with the backing of the homophobe mayor of moscow, yuriy luzhkov managed to prevent the march. the local lgbtq activists claimed a victory though, both in terms of that being the first gathering [or more accurately, an attempt of] ever and the huge publicity which followed the police atrocities. things are looking more optimistic this year but the moscow pride still needs our support.

latvian pride
31.05-03.06
riga, latvia
a ‘make or break’ event for the lgbtq people in latvia. demonstrators last year faced verbal and physical abuse from anti-pride protesters who significantly outnumbered them. leading political figures, such as the latvian president, vaira vike-freiberga effectively took homophobes’ side. the event has already received considerable attention from international media. american, french and british journalists visited riga last month and ken livingston, mayor of london issued a statement of support. keep it up, guys.
