Rus­sia and gay ac­tivists – does that go to­ge­ther? If we con­sider our ste­reo­ty­pi­cal, wes­tern no­ti­ons, then pro­bab­ly not. And yet this photo pro­ves the op­po­si­te. It was ta­ken on May 1, 2014 in St Pe­ters­burg. LGBTI ac­tivists used the May Day ho­li­day – tra­di­tio­nal­ly used for lar­ge pa­ra­des in Rus­sia – to call at­ten­ti­on to the dis­mal si­tua­ti­on of gays and les­bi­ans in their coun­try and fight for their rights. Fur­ther­mo­re, the young peop­le cle­ar­ly show­ed what they think of the con­flict in the Ukrai­ne: “Love is stron­ger than war” was writ­ten across one hu­ge ban­ner.
