People are different by definition and being part of a Gay Pride means celebrating diversity. High heels, feathers, denim, leather, stockings, colossal wigs, stunning makeups and velvet gloves are just some of the elements in the narrative of this event. The vibrant colorful atmosphere that surrounds all the scenes, the sunlight across the dresses and the shadow they project, the passional gazes, the spontaneous poses, the frantic movements, all in perfect unison. Queens and kings meet each other in a catharsis of the extraordinary. The so-called freaks become what they are, humans, normality flows among the crowd. It doesn’t matter what or who we love, the only thing that matters is that we can love. We, humans.
