    Can we hope that Secretary Clinton knows about the disgraceful events in St. Petersburg, Russia, on Saturday when the city authorities banned Slavic Pride and arrested 14 participants. The constitution of the Russian Federation guarantees citizens freed of assembly, but in this case, aparantly not to LGBT citizens.

    Hillary MUST speak up for gay rights in Russia especially after the bashing of St. Petersburg Gay Pride yesterday in Russia. The Pride was banned like any Pride are banned in Russia since 2006 despite Court decisions saying that they should be allowed. Russian authorities keep banning Gay Prides in Moscow and St Petersburg and regularly arresting participants. Hillary must speak ! We want Hillary.

    Hadn’t heard about that — that’s awful.
    I hope she does say something.

    Meanwhile, here in New York, 42 years after Stonewall, our state has become just the 6th state in the US to legalize gay marriage (plus the District of Columbia). Hooray! Only 44 to go. The wheelsof Mercy grind slowly.
