Moscow bans gay pride for 100 yearsBY RYAN COLLETT

The city of Moscow, Russia has banned all public gay pride demonstrations. The Tverskoy district court ruled that the ban will exist for the next 100 years.

Till March 2112, no gay pride events will be allowed in the city of Moscow. The final ruling comes after months of appeals by Russian LGBT activists. One LGBT leader in Moscow, Nikolay Alekseyev, said he intends to post an appeal to the Moscow City Court Presidium, and other LGBT organizers have pledged to fight the ban to the highest courts in Russia—even eventually taking the case to the European Human Rights Court.
