This year, the Moscow LGBT activists have tried to make their voices heard trying to organize a Gay Pride despite the ban.
First assaulted by Orthodox activists before being arrested and apparently beaten by the police, three militants were convicted, without being able to defend themselves, to 10 days in jail.
«The trial was a farce!!!», Nikolai Alexeyev, leader of the fight for LGBT rights in Russia, tweeted.
Since the anti «gay propaganda» law was adopted, no further public protest is permitted for the LGBT community, but it's been almost 10 years that the municipality of Moscow refuses to organize a Gay Pride.
