Buenos Aires’ Gay Pride Parade
Event organizers and city officials saidparade marchers and up to 4 million visitors commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising that triggered the modern LGBTQ movement, with corporate sponsorship and police protection that would have been unthinkable half a century ago. Similar parades were being held around the world, with celebratory events in liberal democracies and growing fights for equality in other places. North Macedonia held its first gay pride march on Saturday. In Singapore, marchers called for scrapping a law banning gay sex.
Events will take place at various venues, culminating in the parade that runs every year along one of the city's most important avenues, Avenida de Mayo, from the Casa Rosada, or "pink house" - the headquarters of the Argentine national government in Plaza de Mayo - to the National Congress building. The event continues outside the Congress with speeches, music and dancing, which lasts into the evening, and continues afterwards in buses, trains and bars and nightclubs. It attracted just people, many wearing masks to conceal their identity.
