Russian police at a "gay rights" parade in Moscow on May 27 (RFE/RL)
June 10, 2006 - Several thousand people staged a rally in Warsaw today to support gay rights in Poland.
A police spokesman said about 2,000 people set off on the "Equality Parade" gay rights march through the center of the Polish capital.
A small group of skinheads threw eggs at the marchers but were prevented from approaching them by police.
Many gays say they face discrimination and open hostility in the Catholic country.
