Next Moscow gay pride planned for May 29

Moscow, January 20, Interfax – Moscow advocates of non-traditional sexual orientation are going to hold next gay pride parade on May 29, Moscow pride organizer Nikolay Alexeyev says.

“We will file a correspondent application to Moscow government in mid-May,” he told Interfax on Wednesday.

“Anyway we will spare no effort to hold a gay pride on this day as our numerous foreign allies plan to participate in the action and have already bought tickets,” he went on to say.

Alexeyev did not specify the event format and pointed out the question would be further discussed.

The gay community representative also reported that the European Human Rights Court extended until February 2010 the term of considering Russian sex minorities’ complaint on banning three previous gay prides – in 2006, 2007 and 2008.
