Montreal Gay Pride brings together nearly 300,000 People

(Blogmensgo, blog Gay of August 26, 2015) Some 290,000 people attended, August 16, 2015, the Montreal Gay Pride. A record crowd after a week LGBT placed under the double sign of good weather - in the second part of the week - and a rainbow sky of course.

Below an unreported youtube video from the event:

This is the ninth time the "Montreal Pride Parade 2015", official name of the LGBT parade Gay Pride or  Montreal, Quebec's metropolis put in all its festive statements. Despite a major partner - Viagra - the blue, the event had the slogan "Our flag, our energy: yellow."
The yellow color symbolizes "the sun, energy and light." Luckily, the three ingredients were conspicuously present at the parade.

The 2015 edition has seen parading 3,200 people divided into 127 "quotas" official (groups or festive vehicles), well above the 72 contingents Montreal shook his torpor straight five years ago.   After the parade, 51,000 people participated in a dance concert. And yesterday, 90,000 people had taken part in a "community day" LGBT.

Never has the public had come as many, according to organizers, both for the LGBT week for the actual show. No fewer than 500,595 people - official estimate cumulative figures - have participated in this week not like the others.

Beyond the festive aspect of the protest, organisers now insist on direct tourism benefits of such events.

We will not mention the Quebec headliners, whose fame rarely exceeds the perimeter of the Belle Province.
Note, however, that the co-chair of the 2015 edition was entrusted to Anna Sharyhina, director of the Gay Pride Ukraine (Kiev the KyivPride 2015 have suffered homophobic violence) and Candis Cayne, artist and performer trans étatsunienne.

The message was therefore both clear and twofold solidarity with the oppressed LGBT people abroad and in reminder that LGBT ago as T trans.
We take this opportunity, once will not hurt, to address a warm hello - but not scorching - specifically to people of TQI LGBTQI acronym.
