Pride in Madrid...

There is a tasteless Inquisition joke in here somewhere...

In a country where Catholic majority views on homosexuality clash with the government's recognition of gay marriage, gay pride organizers use smaller regional venues to build momentum for a national parade in Madrid.


Spain's giant national gay pride parade is set for Saturday, July 5th in Madrid. An estimated 1.5 million people are expected for a gay pride parade winding down the streets of the country's capital city.

Like parades in the U.S., Spaniards plan to celebrate recent gay rights victories. Re-election of the progressive Socialist party in the spring - despite condemnations by the Catholic church and the Pope - ensured gay marriage rights will not be rolled back anytime soon.
