Carlos Melia goes to World Pride in London!
By Carlos Melia
"Last Saturday, we celebrated the World Gay Pride 2012 in London. We marched all along the city to Trafalgar Square, were the main stage was located. There are no official numbers yet of how many participated, but I must say that the procession (aka. Parade) the way the local authorities decided to call the march, was very successful, despite of all the organization, budget, permits problems that have been public for the last few weeks, and for which many were predicting this World Pride to be World Shame Pride.
One of the longest pride parades I have participated off ever, it took approximately three hours, for all the groups to walk through, with a very political presence. The flowing of the parade was not the best, and the lack of floats and music made it to be a bit boring and with a lack of energy. But the message was sent once again, this time in London, that we the International LGBT community with the support of lots of others, are PROUD to be who we are, and THAT is all PRIDE is about."
