Orgullo Gay Madrid 2013 – The Parade

Madrid, July 6th, 2013 – the Pride of Madrid parade started at Atocha, passed on Paseo del Prado, then Cibeles and ended up at Puerta de Alcalá. More than 1.2 million people on the streets ignoring the hot temperature (38 degrees C) to support the LGBT rights, to put pressure on the authorities to respect the LGBT rights, to give a clear answer to homophobia. This year’s slogan of the Pride was ¡Jóvenes sin armarios! – young go out of the closet! I made lots of photos but here is the selection. Enjoy and remember to always say NO! to homophobia!

A little walk in Madrid, 6 January (Día de Reyes)

Even if it was a rainy day, I had a lot of energy to go out (that’s maybe because I was kept inside for two days because of the rain and some other personal reasons) and, well equipped with umbrella and boots, I took a walk through downtown, especially to Puerta de Alcalá which was the only remaining major place to visit since the Christmas lights went on in Madrid. And I saw few times, from the bus, that the decoration of La Puerta was very nice, and I knew I had to take a good photo session there. Well, enjoy the pictures of Madrid by night and my new denim asymmetric trench – I’m sooo proud of it, I bought it with a discount price!!!
