TENS of thousands of revelers turned out yesterday for a gay pride parade in Paris, many of them hailing the legalization of gay marriage in New York and demanding that France follow suit.
Marchers, dressed in drag, brassieres or striped sailor outfits, paraded under a sea of rainbow-colored flags and jigged to thumping techno beats on slow-moving truck beds that became moveable dance floors.
Elsewhere in Europe, however, Russian police detained 14 gay rights activists trying to hold an unsanctioned rally in St Petersburg to demand equal rights for gays.
One suspected attacker was detained.
