    Such a parade, before being anything else, is a gathering of sundry minorities, who have a converging political agenda:mothers and fathers of gay persons, families, people to whom free speech is an issue, those to whom succession rights and social benefit are an issue, those who wish they weren't victimized by the homophobic status quo. These messages are not aimed only at those who might come to show empathy, but also inwards, to tell the closeted persons that they are not alone and dare to express themselves in a militant, political way. The author's professed 'respect' and 'tolerance' for a subcitizen with lesser rights are not wanted. Gays want to be citizens. A gay pride is all that, and there is also music, costumes, and partying. Portraying an institution like the gay pride as a mere bacchanal, as the author of the article seems to do, is straightforward homophobic offal to me.
