One of the Globe's Most Lively Pride Parades:
While the LGBT Pride Parade ("Marché des Fiertés" in French) is an opportunity for GLBTQ organizations to draw attention to key issues affecting gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender individuals, such as rights to marriage and adoption, Paris Gay Pride is never a solemn march. This is a strikingly giddy event that brings together Parisians of all stripes, and not to be missed.
