Gay Pride Genova!


This past Saturday I had the pleasure to participate in Genova’s Gay Pride Parade. We walked 6.5 KM and some of the participants bravely wore stiletto heels! It was over 35 degrees, humid and sunny but everyone was dancing, laughing and having a great time.

My Italian teacher is gay and I was more than happy to walk with him and my good friend Joanne while holding up a banner. Italy is slow to come around to accept people of different walks of life but in particular, Liguria, where the population is comprised mostly of senior citizens, it is an even tougher place to be accepted for who you are.

One of my favourite things in life is catching a rainbow and I absolutely love the fact that rainbows are used as a symbol of equal love. We had a blast and met some wonderful, friendly people along the way! Enjoy the pics, courtesy of my friend Joanne Jourdain. #genovapride #loveislove #humanpride
