A historic ruling in Russia could be the key to finding an end to the ‘gay propaganda’ laws.
Back in March 2009, gay activist Irina Fet protested against the regional homophobic law in Ryazan.
She held a placard saying ‘Homosexuality - It's Normal’ and ‘I am proud of my homosexuality’ outside schools and libraries.
Arrested, charged and fined 1,500 rubles ($46, €34), Fet was found guilty of informing minors about homosexuality.
While her group Moscow Pride appealed the charge, they lost at a local court.
