RE: Gay Pride leader skips Moscow march
Sadly , this is the case in most of Eastern Europe. I have atheist friends and people I know who still think being gay is wrong and dirty. Violence is not uncommon , not even by a long shot. It's almost part of the culture - a dark age culture to be precise Sad

Proud of my genetic relatives Big Grin
