(Moscow, Interfax) – The organizers of a Gay Pride parade in Moscow are determined to hold it despite the Moscow government’s refusal to grant approval, GayRussia.ru coordinator Nikolai Alexeyev told Interfax on Wednesday.

“We plan to hold our procession on Saturday, May 27, roughly at 3:00 p.m., right after the end of a conference to mark the International Day Against Homophobia, which will take place at Moscow’s Swiss Hotel,” Alexeyev said.

Sex minorities in Moscow plan to file an application for a parade on May 15, despite the fact that Moscow Mayor Yury Luzhkov said earlier that he would not allow such an event in the city. He was supported by the leaders of all leading religious confessions in Russia.
