Plymouth "kiss-in" protest against homophobic Russian law
A "KISS-IN" was staged in the city centre as a protest against Russian laws.
The event, organised by Pride in Plymouth, was held under the big screen yesterday afternoon.
The Russian Duma – the country's lower house of parliament – recently passed a law imposing heavy fines for providing information about homosexuality to people under 18. It has been cited by groups across the world as the cause of rising homophobia and violent assaults on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people across Russia.
It has even led to calls from some for the Winter Olympics to be boycotted.

As a result of the law, activists organised the protest to take place simultaneously all over the world. The global "kiss-in", branded 'To Russia With Love', will see photos from more than 45 cities around the world collected to send a clear message of support to activists in Russia who face arrest and violence.
