La Marcha del Orgullo Gay, una fiesta con fuerte reclamo
La bandera del arco iris, símbolo de la diversidad sexual, ayer volvió a ondear bien alto en la Avenida de Mayo, donde miles de personas participaron en la edición número 18 de la Marcha del Orgullo Gay Lésbico Trans Bisexual.

Y un pedido repetido: "¡Matrimonio ya!". Pero esta vez la característica fue que, pese al colorido, había menos gente disfrazada, que iba sola o en grupo y hacía que el aire festivo tuviera una fuerte impronta de reclamo por los derechos de la comunidad gay.
