In this photo made Friday, June 28, 2013, gay and lesbian couples pose outside a registry office after they tried to get married in St.Petersburg, Russia. On Friday, three gay and two lesbian couples attempted to marry at a registry office in St. Petersburg, but were refused by authorities. Russia’s parliament passed a law banning “gay propaganda” earlier this month. St. Petersburg was one of several cities to pass similar laws at local level before that. (AP Photo/Dmitry Lovetsky)
