ARRESTS IN RUSSIA AT PRO-CONCHITA WURST AND GAY RIGHTS DEMOSTRATION

Russian police arrestd two women after a small demonstration for gay rights outside the Moscow mayor's office on yesterday. Women holding rainbow flags were escorted into a police car and taken away. Other gay activists, among them the leader of Russian gay community Nikolay Alexeev, drove by the mayor's office waving rainbow flags. Alexeev and other activists wore wigs to appear like Eurovision Song Contest winner and Austrian drag queen Conchita Wurst and played her winning song Rise like a Phoenix through the loudspeakers.
They didn't have a permit for the demostration but then it would be impossible to get one due to the new laws that forbit all "gay propaganda"....
