The Parade has been growing steadily over the years, conceived as a special celebration of love, peace, freedom and tolerance and this year the organisers were expecting around 1 million visitors.

With the theme ” Dance for Freedom” people were dancing everywhere – in front of the 6 stages, in the streets and on the mobile floats or “love mobiles”. The skies were bright blue and the sun was shining brightly as the floating stages sauntered along from Bellerive towards Opera and then on through the city.

The music blared out of the speakers and people were walking and dancing in the street – and even climbing up traffic lights to get a better view!

And some were covered literally head to toe – whilst others were displaying a lot more flesh!
