PRIDE at the end of my street

25 Jun

Riot of Rainbows - Paris Pride Photo by Jennifer FlueckigerWe heard the tell-tale honking of horns this afternoon.  We live near the Bastille in Paris.  This very important site in French history is often the rallying point for demonstrations and marches.  There is usually something on most weekends and car horns play a large part in the French making themselves heard.

This one was different.  After the car horns, came dance music, really loud dance music. The windows were shaking. We went to the windows and saw the riot of rainbows.  It was the Marche des Fiertes LGBT, Paris PRIDE at the end of our street! Fantastic!

Off to go show support and enjoy the music and atmosphere.Bastille PRIDE - Photo by Jennifer Flueckiger
