This smiling girl was heading the marche holding proudly her Argentinian flag.
In my point of view, it was a kind of illustration how strong is the international solidarity among the Gay and Lesbian community.

très touchante cette solidarité affichée. on dit que lorsque le sourire dévoile les dents du bas, c'est un sourire très spontané. Celui-ci est magnifique.

to explain more precisely, she is a famous argentinian transexual living and working in Paris, and her presence at the front of the march symbolised the theme of 2006 "equality for all in 2007". This is mostly driven towards the gay marriage and the adoption by same sex couples, but it also encompasses rights for the transexuals... and probably something to do with the new immigration laws...
hence her marianne look ! for those who ignore it marianne is the key figure of the French revolution and republic. Her figure is printed on stamps, and her statue is placed in every townhall in France.
nice shot Steven!

I compared them two images and have to say that I prefer this one to the one in WS, because that one there looks as there were additional sources of light available.
Not sure about the skin tones, but this one seems to be more smooth.
Another good one,
