And I have only seen one Mardi Gras gay parade in my life - in Key West, in 1999.

It was fabulous.

And maybe, he thought, they'd never got much farther than that.

@Brian: I don't consider France as a particularly LGBT-tolerant country. And certainly not these days.
I guess I just think that when I was young and same-sex was illegal in Australia, it had been legal in France for many years. And France now has same sex marriage. We have it here in NZ but not Australia. I was surprised at the opposition to it in France, hardly any in NZ.

Yes the opposition was strong, but now things have calmed down - luckily. Nice (where we live) is actually the city where the most LGBT marriages take or took place (including ours), just after Paris.

Great pics by the way  :)

I went to Rio Carnival once - in 78, I believe. Made memorable with a hand-in-hand walk back to the hotel along Copa or somewhere. Would that have been Mardi Gras?

What happened after that walk?
