Moscow may have banned gay pride parades for the next 100 years, but the Czech Republic is celebrating their freedom and Pride. An estimated 10,000 to 15,000 people came out to support the second annual gay pride parade in Prague. The parade started with Anna Grodzka, the first transsexual in Polish parliament, riding in an open car, and many parade participants used the opportunity to condemn the atrocity that is rock band Pussy Riot’s two-year sentence.
Despite anti-gay demonstrations by conservative and religious groups, the parade went off without any of the drama of last year, when the nation’s president, Václav Klaus, agreed with one of his aides’ statements that gay people are “deviants.”
Well, if Czech gays are deviants, someone get me the devil’s number, ‘cuz these boys do it for me every time.
