    So their assertion that there would be public disorder will be self fulfilled . What is with these Neandertals…. Peter Tatchell should stay away. These thugs will target him and i think his life may be in danger. Russia is a lawless cesspit of corruption and there is no telling what may happen.

    1. Jock S. Trap 27 May 2011, 2:44pm

      So it’s ok that the many brave Russians risking their lifes for Human and Gay Right with what sounds like the likelyhood of being attacked?
      Even I can see he is trying to make a difference.
      Things cannot change if people keep it quiet or keep running away.
      It takes some brave souls who have the guts to stand up and be counted.
      It is through those people that change will come.

    2. Peter Tatchell is insane. He will not stay away. He is some sort of gay-political masochist.

      1. Jock S. Trap 27 May 2011, 3:58pm

        Got some bacon going, anyone else want a nice bacon sandwich?

      2. You should know Rich, you’re a basket case yourself, aren’t you?

      3. Rich, takes one to know one, so to speak. Why do you keep coming back to PN, to play the village idiot card. Your behaviour appears pretty masochistic to me!!!

      4. David Myers 28 May 2011, 3:17am

        Don’t feed the Troll Pig!

        1. Jock S. Trap 28 May 2011, 8:24am

          Oh I wasn’t offering him a Bacon Sandwich.

        2. Jock S. Trap 28 May 2011, 8:25am

          For some reason he just reminded me of having one… don’t know why!

  2. I agree, ‘Peter’ this is insane! You could get hurt. You are to old and frail to be doing stuff like this.

    1. And yet he still puts his own safety on the line to give a face to gay opression.
      What a man =]

      1. Peter Tatchell is as much gay-obsessed idiot, as N. Alekseyev is. Both are mentally abnormal creatures. Both attempting the impossible task in Russia. Over 83% of Russian people dislikes homosexual perverts. So, what’s the point to go against will of great majoriy of Russia’s population?

        1. As much as you are a gay-obsessed idiot, Rich?

        2. Rich, so if you are not a “Gay obessed bigot”, why do you keep returning to pink news?

  3. Not pissing off Rusian authorities is a good idea. I say leave them to it.

  4. DO NOT CONDUCT THIS SICK MARCH OVER THERE!!!

    1. DO NOT MAKE YOUR FOOLISH COMMENTS OVER HERE!!!

    2. Are you a bottom Sottom?
      Or do you just talk from one?

      1. Very good Tigra 07. Well said!

      2. Jock S. Trap 27 May 2011, 3:51pm

        Mmm, don’t know why but suddenly have a craving for a really nice bacon sandwich with ketchup.
        Guess it must be thinking Rich has just changed his name but kept the content the same.

  5. Sottom love, the Russian ‘authorities’ are a bunch of criminals, thieves, fraudsters, murderers, led by two pint sized gangsters who think they are ‘well ard’. The Russian’s in the main are still in the 16th Century often pickled in vodka and in thrall to either the Russian Church or the state run mafia. Why I wonder do the educationally challenged insist on using block capitals and at least three exclamation marks?

    1. Johnny, why do you spreading slander on Russia? What bad things Russia did to you? Nothing. Why don’t you shot up and respect the people of other country. Stick your mind to your beloved Britain. That’s would be proper course of life for you.

      1. Jock S. Trap 27 May 2011, 4:28pm

        Heroine addict is johnny then Rich?
        “Respect the people of other country” …Seriously!! My how I laughed. Next you’ll be going on about other peoples rights and how they should have them.

        1. His mother was a heroine addict, you know, Jock…..

          1. Jock S. Trap 28 May 2011, 10:47am

            Presumably while she was expecting him, I take it?
            Would explain..

      2. Hey Rich, would you like a lesson in a “proper course of life for you”?
        .
        [STFU comes to mind…]

        1. Jock S. Trap 27 May 2011, 4:47pm

          Think that might take forever, Rehan!

      3. Rich, deary, put a sock in it will ya, theres a good boy. You are an boring, outdated, backward thinking thespian, full of hate and despise anything thats remotely different from your narrow minded view on a quickly changing world.

        Get with it you luddite. Accept that the world is changing and people will have to accept this, whether they like it or not. They can shout and scream or post inane dross like you are doing, but it won’t make the slightest iota of difference. Oppression against the LGBT community, like you are showing… will only make the LGBT community stronger.

    2. Johnny, why do you spreading your slander on the country of which you have no knowledge? What bad things Russia did to you that you hate Russia and spreading lies aboit it? Are trying to say that U.K. is free of thieves, fraudsters, murderers, gangsters, and the U.K.’ government doesn’t conduct mass murder anywhere in the world? Since this is not the case, why don’t you just shot up?

      1. Jock S. Trap 27 May 2011, 5:02pm

        I have a feeling the UK is free from you so that’s one better thing!

      2. Shot up? Where should be shoot up? Do you shoot up too?

        Muppet.

      3. Rich, which part of Russia do you live in?

        1. Jock S. Trap 28 May 2011, 8:27am

          Chernobyl would explain a lot!

  6. Jock S. Trap 27 May 2011, 2:39pm

    Police are supposed to be there to protect no harrass and abuse.
    Disgraceful.
    It seen’s Moscow has a long way to go.

    1. Police doing its job and implementing government’s order. Police do protect stupid homosexuals from being beaten and killed by some angry people of Russia.

      1. Jock S. Trap 27 May 2011, 4:29pm

        Wish you’d go there, you seem to know so much about it’s Gay culture.
        Something tells me Rich like the ‘Darkroom’!

      2. I’m always amused how this rich-animal can call others stupid when he writes like a 3 years old….. that is, except when his “personality” flips, and his English gets magically and inexplicably better, but the content is still that of a demented 5 years old throwing playground insults. No matter, its of little consequence what Rabid-Rich says.

      3. The stupidity of Russian gay-activists is obvious. They will never get what they want in Russia because majority of its population standing against homosexual perverts. The simple fact that 83% of Russia population rejects homosexuals is the indication of massive opposition to gay politics in Russia. If so, why to bother with demonstrations, which can become a cause for even more opposition and resistance from Russian people in general? Where is the logic behind such action as false “gay pride” in Moscow?

        1. Who cares what you think, Russia is in the dark ages compared to Europe, they’ll follow our example eventually.

        2. Rich, I understand you are opposed to Russian Gays fighting for justice and freedom.
          .
          Rich, in what way are you going to oppose this developiag Gay Activist movement in Russia, albeit your comments on pinknews?

          1. David Myers 28 May 2011, 3:22am

            You guys do know what Troll means, don’t you? You know . . . someone who gets their kicks out of provoking people and getting a response regarless of their own true values or beliefs? Why reward him?

          2. Jock S. Trap 28 May 2011, 8:28am

            Probably because he gets more and more ridiculous with each comment.
            It’s better entertainment than the tellybox.

  7. Police said today they would cut short any “unlawful actions”, Ria Novosti reports.

    It’s a bit of a shame the police appear to be reluctant to cut short other unlawful actions like … oh, I don’t know, bribery, corruption, gang and racist violence for starters, isn’t it?

    1. It isn’t.
      Rehan, you are such an ignorant….You talking of the Russian police without any knowledge whatsoever. It does fighting many unlawful actions. If police in Russia would not fight the crime, Russia would collapse already…

      1. “If police in Russia would not fight the crime, Russia would collapse already…”

        Yeah, like Russia isn’t halfway to collapse already.

      2. It does fighting many unlawful actions.
        .
        I’m sure it does Rich, just not enough – as is blatantly obvious to even the most casual observer.

        1. Rehan, are you observing Russia in facts or in press’ gossips? Did you ever go to Russia, did you ever read statistics about its economics? Just be truthful. That’s all what I would like to hear from you.

          1. Rich, are you observing homosexuality in facts or in press gossip? Have you ever been homosexual, have you ever read any [reputable] research into its biological aspects? Just be thoughtful. That all I would like to hear from you.

          2. LOL @ Rehan.

            Nice.

          3. Rehan, you are a coward. You didn’t answer my questions. What a shameful thug you ARE…

          4. Russia is a backwards country as corrupt as Mugabe and has 17% approval for gays, when those 17% have kids it becomes a higher amount.
            We’re doing very well Rich and will see gay equality in Russia – dustbin of Europe, in less than 50 years.
            Now be a good boy and get back to bed with your sister.

          5. Jock S. Trap 28 May 2011, 10:48am

            OMG – Hilarious.
            Bit Rich, Rich, innit!!

          6. Rich, you are a coward. You didn’t answer my questions. What a shameful thug you ARE…

  8. Well, who else but Peter would risk his life for gay rights? Nobody else in our country would do just that. They’re quick to criticise and denigrate him, so my advice to them is….if you can’t do better, then shut up and lets hear what YOU are doing to make life better for gays around the world? If it weren’t for people like Peter, none of us would be enjoying any semblance of equality. He it was who put marriage equality on the map long before Holland became the first country to allow it. He’s a pioneer and an extremely brave man unlike few others I’ve come to know.

    1. Totally agree.

      1. No Rehan, the so-called “pride” (in fact it is the shame) is banned because there are a great concern of Moscow government for security on the streets of Moscow. Government wants to prevent injuries and death of its citizens, regardless their sexual orientations. Government of Moscow also banned demonstration of antihomosexual organizations. That’s the fact also, and very important fact. Police will prevent so-called “homophobic” opposition from demonstrations as much as homophilic creatures, “gays”, on Moscow’ streets. That’s logical, so far.

        1. That would explain how Tatchell was so seriously attacked last time, wouldn’t it? The Russian police you’re so proud of don’t seem to be terribly good at what they’re supposed to do (protect people, in this instance), do they?

        2. @Rich
          .
          Gotcha
          .
          When you use the phrase below
          .
          “Police will prevent so-called “homophobic” opposition from demonstrations as much as homophilic creatures,”
          .
          Only David Skinner would use the term “homophillic creatures”

    2. Paddyswurds 27 May 2011, 4:17pm

      I also agree, but putting his life on the line in Russia.? He isn’t the young go getter he once was and his health should now take priority.

    3. What “gay” rights in Russia are you talking about? Perverts in Russia possess all civil rights, that’s the fact.

      1. And what would you know about Russia, peasant?

        1. Or civil rights for that matter, eh Will?
          .
          (Incidentally, don’t be nasty about peasants, I’m sure many of them can show greater intelligence and kindliness than Rich is capable of.)

          1. You’re right, of course, Rehan. I meant to call him pond scum. Although technically pond-scum has a biological usefulness.

          2. Heh.

          3. Russian homosexuals does possessing civil right (unfortunately!). Apparently, you have no knowledge of such fact.

          4. That’s why a Pride march is banned, is it Rich?

          5. “Apparently, you have no knowledge of such fact.”

            And nether do you, moron.

      2. Jock S. Trap 27 May 2011, 4:43pm

        Oh Rich, your so funny!

    4. “Well, who else but Peter would risk his life for gay rights? Nobody else in our country would do just that.”
      Because nobody as much crazy as Peter are…

      1. Well, you for starters.

      2. Rich, only a fundamentalist christian like david skinner would be obessed with Peter Tatchell!!!

    5. David Myers 28 May 2011, 3:27am

      That makes three. The Queens of Stonewall had guts too and decided they couldn’t afford to put up with it anymore. All of our activists (and when I say our, I mean in all countries of the world – gays, lesbians, bi’s, trans, everyone including straight allies who support universal human rights) had to look fear in the eye and say “I have to stand up for what is right and I have to look beyond fear”. Thanks from all of us are so overdue to all of these fearless pioneers and one of them is Peter. Good on him!

  9. Bravo! Congrats to Moscow!
    Keep perverts out of Moscow streets!

    1. Jock S. Trap 27 May 2011, 3:52pm

      See I know I craved a bacon Sandwich!!

    2. Jock S. Trap 27 May 2011, 3:53pm


      for a reason!

    3. Rich
      .
      “Bravo”
      .
      Very middle England, perhaps Bland Forum in dorset perhaps!!!, do you not think!!!

    4. Yes Rich, keep them out of the streets so the gay people who run your fashionable shops and run your economy can come out to play and have a pride march.

  10. The only pervert in here is YOU, Rich!

    1. Jock S. Trap 27 May 2011, 4:44pm

      Amen to that!!

    2. A person who opposes homosexuality because it stands against evolution of Mankind, cannot be a pervert. What you said in my regard is pure idiotism.

      1. Jock S. Trap 27 May 2011, 5:20pm

        Yeah, you keep telling yourself that honey!!

      2. Oh Rich. Poor, poor Rich. You present yourself as an example of yet-to-evolve mankind: should we be defending you?

        1. You are incapable to participate in evolution of manking, while I am capable. That’s the difference. You and other homosexuals are worthless creatures on Earth, that’s the fact.

          1. A fact, eh? So that’s why you spend so very much of your time on a gay website. Yes, yes, makes perfect sense …

          2. “You are incapable to participate in evolution of manking, while I am capable.”

            Sunshine, no-one, and I mean, no-one, would want to have off-spring with you, your genes are clearly damaged.

          3. while I am capable
            .
            Delusions aside, I suppose a work in progress is better than nothing.
            .
            (Or is it?)

          4. Rich is missing at least 9 key pairs of chromosomes before he’s capable of mating with a human…. he should probably stick to trying to mate with pond scum. Even then, I don’t fancy his chances….

          5. Jock S. Trap 28 May 2011, 8:32am

            He just gets funnier.

          6. Jock S. Trap 28 May 2011, 8:34am

            Will
            You say you don’t fancy his chances…
            I bet the friends of the person he “mates” with are saying the same to “him” about Rich!

  11. Russia = zhora mira
    Rich = dolboeb

    1. I don’t know what do you mean “zhora mira” and “dolboeb”… Could you translate it in English?

      1. Maybe you could translate your comments into English first, Rich? They sound, well, crazy and illiterate.

      2. Rich, it really is “rich” so to speak, that you pretend to be some one else when, really you are just sad old david skinner in a rather paper thin diguise.
        .
        david
        .
        pathetic, your obession with homosexulity is really out of control, is’nt it!!!

        1. Paddyswurds 27 May 2011, 8:44pm

          This “Rich” is definitely Skinner.He’s been banned so often he has to resort to this shyte to try fooling PN. PINK NEWS are you watching this “Rich” character. Why do we have to put up with this homophobic abuse on a supposedly GAY site.

          1. @Paddyswurds
            .
            I agree, well spotted.
            We are cosing in on him now!!!

          2. Typo
            .
            Closing in on him now

      3. Vy gavareeteh pa rusky? Net dolboeb.

        Because you are David Skinner, well known on these pages as a mental case.

        Could you please go and play with a speeding truck there’s a love?

        1. You are totally wrong. I am not a Russian and I am not David Skinner.

          1. Jock S. Trap 28 May 2011, 10:54am

            David Skinner or Stephen Green?

          2. Who cares what you are Rich, to us you’re just an animal.

      4. dolboeb= dunce
        zhora mira = Jora world

  14. Fags stay out Russia

    1. Are you all that “brave” in Russia that you need autonomous internet to make hate comments, and neo-naz1’s to beat up peaceful marchers? What a marvellous country Russia must be…. marvellous, but full of cowards….
