Gay parents and people with HIV joined the 35 floats which took part in Madrid’s gay pride celebrations which brought more than 57,000 onto the capital’s streets on Saturday.

The parade’s slogan this year was ‘Health and equality by law’, and speakers warned the Partido Popular that they will not consent to any backwards steps in homosexual marriage.

The Minister for Equality, Bibiana Aido, was at the head of the procession and called for the PP to remove the ‘shameful’ appeal they have made about gay marriage to the Constitutional Court, because ‘it goes against happiness and the more than 20,000 gay weddings which have been celebrated in Spain over the past six years’.

Many of the floats carried messages against the Pope and the Catholic Church, and the parade came on the same day that the Bishop of Alcalá published a guide to ‘cure’ homosexuality. His webpage (www.obispadoalcala.org) invites gays to read the texts about perverts in the Bible. The Bishop says he offers his advice ‘with the most exquisite respect for the people’.

Pedro Zerolo, Secretary of Social Movements of the PSOE, responded that ‘homosexuality is not an illness, but homophobia is, and it is cured with education of the citizens’.
