As American gays celebrate the Supreme Court rulings this weekend at Gay Pride events in New York and San Francisco, the Russian government cracked down on a small Gay Pride event in St. Petersburg. A couple of hundred thugs beat and taunted a small group of marchers.

Three of the couples had a commitment ceremony ahead of the march.

Police were as much a part of the beatings and harassment of marchers as the nationalists thugs.
