Today we are taking you to Paris for the Gay Pride, with some photos we have just received from our friend Vincent. Liza Minnelli opened the Gay Pride in Paris earlier today “Freedom” she cried, dancing on a float along with Paris gay mayor Bertrand Delanoe.
Unlike the Gay Prides in the US, the Gay Pride in Paris is not just a parade of associations and promoters for a mostly gay audience oriented to “gay ghetto”, it is a parade of gay and straight people, dancing, celebrating, and protesting in front of a mixed audience in the heart of Paris. Gay Prides here are like the Disney parades on main street USA, in Europe it’s not so organized in a sense that you can interact with the floats and follow the one you want (depending mostly on the music they are playing!).
In the gallery below, see all the photos. Merci Vincent
