Russian courts have affirmed the decision of the Moscow municipal government to ban gay pride parades for the next 100 years. Something tells me that like the 1,000 Year Reich proclaimed by the Nazis and the New Scientific Man unveiled by the Soviets, this 100 year ban will crumble well before its stated expiration date.
According to the AP coverage:
Gays serve openly in Israel’s military. The parliament and Supreme Court have granted gays a variety of family rights, such as inheritance and survivor’s benefits.
Earlier this year, Tel Aviv was picked by readers of the travel website Gaycities as the top gay destination, ahead of Amsterdam and San Francisco.
