Bigger, better and brighter — the ninth edition of Delhi Queer Pride Parade managed to gather hundreds at Tolstoy Marg in Connaught Place on Sunday. Fighting for their rights against the Section 377, the LGBT (Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community came out with balloons, placards, props and more to celebrate the spirit of freedom. This year, the parade got immense support from around the world, including nations like the United Kingdom, Canada, Taiwan, Germany and the United States of America. The parade also had participants from various embassies and some visitors had flown down specially for it. “I have been to many pride parades in and around the UK and this feels very familiar, but what makes it much bigger is the strong meaning attached to it,” said Patrick Mannion, a resident of UK who was part of the parade.
