30 Photos: 2017 Roma Pride Parade

The 2017 Roma Pride Parade happened yesterday. It was a very beautiful day with normal early summer temperature. It started from Plaza de la Republica and ended up at Piazza de Venezia. A fellow couchsurfer and I joined the parade that lasted almost three hours. I didn’t finish the parade route because my legs were so […]

Here are the photos of the 2015 Toronto Pride Parade. I wasn’t really motivated to finish the Pride because it got boring. I don’t like it when each group has more than 50 people marching and do nothing but walk. Not even cheering. It got drag. So, I decided to just go somewhere else. Or […]

Pussy Riot Led Toronto Pride Parade 2015

Pussy Riot led Toronto Pride Parade 2015 amidst constant drizzle and chilly temperature.

The Shirtless Boys of World Pride

I didn’t intend to write a separate blog entry of these shirtless boys of World Pride in Toronto until the Pride Parade was almost over. It was 6 hours long — and shirtless, sexy boys are all over (me) and they’re the ones that made the crowd (especially girls and gays) screamed to the top […]

Bangalore Pride Parade 2013

It’s raining rainbows (mostly umbrellas), if not men, at the Bangalore Pride Parade 2013! A fabulous friend of mine (who happens to be also a traveler) has recently attended the event and he got nothing to say but optimism and pride to demand equal rights for all LGBT communities in India. Escorted by some police officers, the […]
