Last weekend, the 18th Vienna Pride parade ("Regenbogenparade") took place in our beautiful city and made me and my friends plus about a hundred thousand other people come out to celebrate and demonstrate. The reason for celebrating always is the increasing tolerance and acceptance towards the LGBT community and also, simply all people being different and proud of who they are. The reason for demonstrating is clearly the lack of equality in so many ways, especially in front of the law. I'm gonna repeat myself every year if necessary, and stress how important it is for our society to wake up and realise we've made it to the 21st century, where people need to reach out for those who belong to a 'minority' and fully include them into society, right where they - we all - belong. Sadly, other countries' regimes still have the power to prohibit pride parades and all sorts of protests and even punish those who peacefully demonstrate for their rights. Especially Russia's inhumane law attracted attention these days - and I truly hope that one day (rather soon) the system's gonna change and people will be able to show their true colours around the world. Until then, I only got one thing to say: Fuck you, Putin.

town is decorated with rainbow flags, equality and peace signs. Although it
should, I know this isn't self-evident. So, thank you!
