Photos: Kiss-in rallies across the globe to protest Russian anti-gay law

Joseph McCormick September 10, 2013

Over the weekend, kiss-in protests took place around the globe in dozens of cities to rally against a Russian anti-gay law introduced in June.

According to organisers, 50 cities took part around the world. Revellers gathered with placards, and same-sex couples kissed in protest against the Russian law passed in June, which bans the promotion of “non traditional” relationships.

Here are just a few of our favourite photographs from around the world.
