Willy-nilly I get news about the colorful marches from Bucharest or Timisoara.
Pathos and tragedy from the town hall to the foreign ambassies. Mature people discuss that matter but the most powerful argument is the gay one: that is why we make these marches in the centers of the cities to let people known that there are gay men among us.
The picture I imagine is like this: how would it look like the parade of the butchers on Calea Victoriei? Or the parade of the dustmen, of the sewerage plunger? Do you know how hard is to open a sewerage, to stop the flowing water from a broken pipe from where if flows shit? There are thousands of people whose jb is this they take care of the sewerage and we don`t know anything about them!
How would it be if they made a parade in Victoria Square in their shit collecting machines, to make us know they exist, to make us think a little what these men we don`t think about have to face? Cause the gay men don`t go to a parade like normal people, but with their entire work arsenal, with belts, muzzles, feathers, pants with thorns and other adornments which in work terms are what is shit and everything related to it for the workers from sewerage.
Let them parade. Let them make themselves known they exist!
