More than 2,000 gay rights supporters protested in Amsterdam, waving rainbow flags and chanting slogans criticizing the Russian government's homosexuality policies. The protest was organized in response to a concert featuring a Russian state orchestra and choir to be held on the same place later in the evening. Speakers at the protest, titled "To Russia With Love," included Amsterdam Mayor Eberhard van der Laan, who spoke of the city's longstanding tolerance for gay rights. (AP Photo/Margriet Faber)
