The first time I saw the gay village banner, I was amused.
Though the name sounds dubious, turns out that gay village is more like a music event from June till September where DJ’s are invited to perform and people just enjoy themselves. Kind of like WOMAD
But the first time I saw this gay pride banner, I was stunned.
Mainly because I didn’t expect a country where the main religion is Roman Catholics to be so open about events such as these.
It looked pretty fun though and so festive! With so many people dressing up, a plentiful of cross dressers, it kind of reminds me of Thailand. We couldn’t stop because we were rushing to use the open bus before the services ends. I feel really bad that I missed it.
I even saw a tall one, all dressed up glamourously with a “Miss Italia” sash. I badly wanted a picture with her! Instead, all I could snap was is this lousy blur picture because the bus was moving.
Hopefully next time.
