The rainbow flags are coming down already in Paris, but we wanted to do a little recap of last weekend's pride festivities (now that we've recovered!). The best parade that we can remember in the past few years, Paris Pride was colorful, sunny. exciting, friendly, and absolutely perfect. We staked out a spot along Pont Sully, over the river, and the views were, well. take a look for yourself...
Oh, why, hello there gentlemen! The floats were rowdy and full of scantily clothed men. No one was complaining, of course.
Wonder Woman? American Indians? Vampires? Yep, that's Paris Pride.
These may have been two of the most popular guys at Paris Pride (not us, surprisingly!). They were absolutely delightful, reigning over the parade, letting the attendees take photos with them (we couldn't resist!).
OK let me guess: Gay Avril Lavigne and Gay Tin Man? Did I get it right?
You get it all in Paris. The fashion queens channeling their best Conchita Wurst (I think they had some killer heels) and of course the ladies, who often go unnoticed in Paris.
It was a bit hot to wear our berets, unfortunately, but this guy rocked his while waving his flag.
He who evokes Pride evokes rainbows and abs.
It's not all glitter and giggles. Paris Pride takes is very activist-heavy, with floats dedicated to health issues, national political groups, and international human rights activists.
Just...aww. Same time and place next year, yeah? See you then!
