They aren't allowed to protest at all. One person can have a placard but not in a whole slew of places anywhere there might be kids, news cameras... if there's 2 within a certain (small) distance then they get arrested. could be fines, could be prison. And, nother worry is those anti-gay groups get to hear about it and then target those individuals by setting them up, filming it, even torture and posting it on the internet and the police know all about it and do jack all
Least with a parade there's, initially, safety in numbers, but if the anti groups have filmed it and identify people then they find themselves targeted later

Gay people are people too..

I am dismayed by Russia's anti-gay stance

Not that I am gay.. Only about 2% of the people here are gay and it consumes everybody.. Personally I think if we let them be they would not be an issue
