Update from Minsk

Between 30 to 40 protesters blocked the entrance of the Crowne Plaza Hotel last night in Minsk in an attempt to stop the viewing of the documentary movie “Beyond Gay: The Politics of Pride,” and the official start of Slavic Pride 2010. Police showed up on the scene and the group disbanded about an hour later. During the viewing a bomb threat was called into the hotel, and the participants were moved to another floor.
