British actor Stephen Fry attacked Russia's gay rights record on Thursday and met the lawmaker behind St Petersburg's ban on homosexual "propaganda", the model for a proposed national law that critics say could be used to discriminate against gay people. Homosexuality, punished with jail terms in the Soviet Union, was decriminalized in Russia in 1993, but much of the gay community remains underground and prejudice runs deep.
