Gay 'Kiss-Off' Protest In Argentina Ahead Of Putin Visit

Gay-rights activists staged a "kiss-off" in front of the Russian Embassy in Buenos Aires late on July 10 to protest Russia's antigay legislation ahead of a visit by President Vladimir Putin, scheduled for July 12. Gay rights in Argentina, where same-sex couples can marry and adopt children, contrast sharply with policy in Russia, where a ban on homosexual "propaganda" makes it a crime to publicly promote gay rights.
