Madridīs gay pride (around 2.000.000 people-biggest of Europe)















































Kylie Minogue was the invited star and she presented her last single All the lovers with Flashmob included.

People were rehersing during some days and it was a total surprise for her. She couldnīt stop laughing when she saw people dancing all together her new song.

Here you have the rehersal and Kylieīs show, sorry for the low quality but iītīs a good laugh

Between 1 and 2 million every year, and around 2,5 million during Europride in 2007.

My impression is that gays are not interested in football.

not so true (yeah, I asume you're joking), but anyway most of the people partying there aren't homosexuals, it's just an excuse for a party for everyone. I'm always skeptic about the participation numbers though (for anything).
