Moscow Pride Banned For 2nd Year

Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov has banned the gay pride parade for the second year in a row, saying a parade would violate the rights of non-gay residents. Last month parade organizers lost a libel case against the mayor after he called pride marches "satanic". Last year about 200 people were arrested for defying the parade ban, but charges were later dropped.
