    Gay Pride Parade, Paris, June 25th 2011


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     parallaxes sent us photos and videos from Paris' Gay Pride Parade on June 25, 2011. He tells CNN, 'like every year, the mood was really cool and the parade is always an opportunity to share good vibes both with the "actors", mainly very young people, and with the audience. Happy, smiling, and proud people. You can feel here something like a real solidarity.'

    Paris, June 25th 2011: the Gay Pride Parade marched through Paris, from Place Montparnasse to place de la Bastille.


    The parade was launched (Picture 1) by the actress Arielle Dombasle, in the presence of the Mayor of Paris, Bertrand Delanoe, the Socialist Party number two, Harlem Désir and the representatives of the Left Front, Marie -George Buffet and Jean-Luc Melenchon.


    Approximately 500 000 people enjoyed the parade, in a very revendicative way, with the slogan "Pour l'égalité, en 2011 je marche, en 2012 je vote"  "I walk in 2011 for equality, I vote in 2012."


    And a special version of La Marseillaise!
