Thousands Celebrated Gay Pride In Madrid

Thousands took the streets of Spain’s capital Madrid for the annual gay pride parade.

Typically Spanish reports:

Gay parents and people with HIV joined the 35 floats which took part in Madrid?s gay pride celebrations which brought more than 57,000 onto the capital?s streets on Saturday.

The parade?s slogan this year was ?Health and equality by law?, and speakers warned the Partido Popular that they will not consent to any backwards steps in homosexual marriage.

The Minister for Equality, Bibiana Aido, was at the head of the procession and called for the PP to remove the ?shameful? appeal they have made about gay marriage to the Constitutional Court, because ?it goes against happiness and the more than 20,000 gay weddings which have been celebrated in Spain over the past six years?.
