I escaped Rimini for the day this past weekend and headed to Bologna to check out their annual LGBT Pride. Was a nice escape and great to see so many people out for it. I’ll make a proper post soon about Bologna and Pride (and Italy and gays), but thought I’d just share a few photos first.

Hope you enjoyed these photos from Bologna Pride 2012! I’ve got plenty more and will try to put a short video together as well. And actually write something down about the festival. It was a bit strange to visit a fairly local pride (Bologna’s not the biggest city) as a foreigner where I don’t even speak the language! But it was still amazing to see so many people come together—it was bigger and brighter than I would’ve imagined. More photos later :)

  2. Love the top pic. So colourful. Can’t believe we’ve lived in Manchester (the UK version) a few times and have never seen the gay pride event there. That’s supposed to be some spectacle! :)

    • Manchester is supposed to be one of the biggest in the UK, if I’m right? I’d really love to visit the city, actually – hopefully soon!
