Dublin Pride!

Yesterday I attended the Dublin pride. After being left on my own, I walked around and looked at people. So many happy smiles, pretty people, cool costumes, and such a wonderful atmosphere! I even met a girl with a poster saying “free hugs”! Yes, I went for it, I got the hug!

The parade started, and in the beginning I saw a crowd where they spoke different languages, and wearing t-shirts with androids on them. I had no idea who they were, but snook in between them. I overheard a girl speaking Norwegian, so I started talking to her, and it turned out the crowd were people working at Google. I ended up sneaking my way backwards, and ended up walking with the equal marriage rights people. Though we Norwegians have those rights already, it something I fully support, so I stayed with them until the parade ended.

It was a very sunny day, and I ended up getting a sunburn! But was such a wonderful thing to do, and it made me realise I really want to do the parade in Oslo again at some point. Pride is wonderful, it shows such diversity! Very lovely!

And of course, some photos:
