Police are cracking down on protesters demonstrating Friday in support of gay rights in Moscow.

The demonstration follows a controversial new policy against gays and lesbians signed into law by Russian President Vladimir Putin. The new law bans the adoption of Russian-born children by gay couples.

It also goes a step further and bans adoptions by couples or singles living in any country where same-sex marriage is legal.
