Belgian Gay Pride 2011, Brussels (yet another photographic coverage…)

First of all, let me say I remain puzzled at those “gents” who feel compelled to reaffirm their true heterosexuality at any given time, preferably by spitting their hate on them “vissius, pigheaded fags”. Have they tried it in the past and are they now ashamed of it ? Are they thinking about it each time they let themselves go inside their female partner’s dark and smooth cavern, and do they hate themselves for it, thereby projecting that hate onto an easily identifiable enemy, in order not to get eaten up by their hatred ? God only knows…

Huge crowd this year – the weather was sunny, after all… – no less than 45.000 people (according to the event organizers) marched proudly to affirm they gayness or, in the case of the gay-friendly, their total acceptance of sexual difference.

Well, hellow !

There was a particular focus on gay rights across the globe, mainly in the African countries, most of which remain fiercely opposed to depenalizing (!!!) homosexuality…

In this XXIst century, eight countries are still punishing sodomy between male partners by death !

Reggae (and rap) musicians, spiritual “leaders”, and even heads of States… in some countries and for some people (far too many of them, actually), hating homosexuals is still public policy ! Yet, once again : if one is feeling alright and serene with oneself and one’s own sexuality, how can one in any way feel the urge to express hate towards people who are doing it in a different way but at the same time not trying to impose anything on them ?… or is this too much of a straight forward explanation ?

In (broad) Europe, not every gay or lesbian can claim to “voir la vie en rose” either… The mayor of Moscow (a city where such a parade is still forbidden…), for instance, is particularly verbally agressive towards the homosexuals. The (not so) funny thing is that, all throughout history, the homosexuals have always been depicted as the enemy, the infiltrator from the other side, but even today, in some EU-countries, there are a lot of things preventing from putting an equal sign between gay and rights, despite the fact the latter are supposed to be guaranteed by the European Union !!! Other priorities, I guess…

If there’s a reason to be proud about Belgium (Yes, yes !…), it’s our leadership on ethical issues (not only in this matter) : Belgian gay people are not only allowed to marry, they can adopt a child, too ! To my knowledge, no one has yet reported any case of “fridge frozen babies” in any such families…

By the way, green (French and Dutch-speaking together !) and red were the only represented political colours in the pride… Oh yeah, and a tiny lil’ toucha blue, at the end as well… SO YOU BE A GOOD DOG COME ELECTION DAY !

Not everything is accomplished, though, as the transgender and transexual subcommunity could tell you… But, seriously, what could you refuse such beautiful creatures, I ask ya ?…

Don’t I know you from somewhere ?

You think (s)he’s looking ridiculous, do you ? I don’t… but I do ask myself the following question, though : why the fuck do you care ?

Not as you had imagined, guyz… LOL

Well, mellow !
