Russian police have detained at least 25 LGBT rights activists during a protest in St Petersburg to promote the rights of sexual minorities. About 60 activists gathered at the main square in the city center, despite a ban being placed on the rally. They held up placards and rainbow-colored flags and called for LGBT rights to be protected. In 2013, Russia passed legislation banning the spreading of what it described as gay propaganda.
