Gay Pride 2006: London / EuroPride

Sir Ian McKellan and Mayor Ken Livingstone joined the crowds during London’s gay pride parade (the last and biggest stop of EuroPride 2006) — but we know you’re more interested in seeing the floats, the signs, and of course, the mens. While this year’s attendance of 40,000 didn’t meant organizers’ expections of 500,000 – a huge number expected because the event didn’t conflict with the World Cup; last year’s coincidided with the Live 8 concert but still drew 250,000 – the event has been labeled a success: no major brawls between the crowds and police, and protestors were all but ignored.
