You're reading: Gay is the new black

I visited Christopher Street Day in Berlin on June 25 – one of the biggest gay pride parades in Europe. You might have even seen the pictures from this prominent event in the press – of course, not of the 98 percent normal-looking people, including children, who attended this feast of love and fun, but those 2 percent who would turn your head on the street by their outrageous looks and crazy behavior.

Those 2 percent are the people who are tolerated the least by the gay haters and who turn people who don’t have an established opinion about homosexuality against the sexual minority.
