Comment: The small gay pride march with a lion’s roar 2
12:00 AM — PinkNews.co.uk's Nikki Sinclair reports on South Africa's 5th gay pride celebrations in Cape Town. Imagine how delighted my girlfriend and I were last Thursday to find out that, through sheer serendipity, we had managed to arrive in Cape Town just in time for 'Pride' weekend, during our brief trip to South Africa. We had spent a very interesting ten days already, visiting the rather more conservative Durban and Pretoria, and were now staying very close to the gay village in Cape Town. We couldn't wait to take part in the festivities, and hopefully make some new friends along the way.
