    Please folks and I am really against Putin stance on Gay (Human) rights.

    Please don’t do this. We must allow the good that has been done to stand and remember when we stood together.

    That does not diminish the current disputes or disagreements we have. I would have done the opposite. I would have made sure every gay person in San Fran was there in full rainbow colours and asked the world press to publish it around the world showing the good people of the USA standing by Russia.

    Going head to head never works and surely USA you have learned that by now.

    Lead by example first….Russia please listen, learn and change….then the world will respect you.

    The nutter nations only want your weapons…is that what Russia really stands for.

    It’s stupid, plain and simple, to cancel a celebration of the humanitarian actions of the Russian navy in the late 1800s now, while we are trying to encourage the current Russian government to be more humane.

    Remind them that gay and straight sailors helped save gay and straight San Franciscans, and that the world was better for it. How can anyone argue against that?
