(Blogmensgo, June 27, 2012) For the thirty-fourth edition, the Gay Pride in Berlin was attended by between half a million and 700,000 people around a procession just as festive, colorful and thundering as in previous years. Some 62 organizations and 46 tanks paraded in the capital’s Kreuzberg district to the Brandenburg Gate, with a climax to a busy LGBT week.
Several distinguished speakers have graced the event with their speeches, starting with Klaus Wowereit. The mayor of Berlin, assumed gay, recalled that in Germany too, discrimination against gays and lesbians still exists to varying degrees but it is tangible.
