Photographer's Note

Among 1.5 million people at the Gay Pride Parade, and still you are able to find people you know... For good or for ooops, Gotcha boy!

Well, seriouly speaking, there is still lot of people that aovid to go to this parade even thinking they should go. Why? Unfortunately there is fear to be watched in any TV, fear of your boss, collegues, families... In fact there is still a lot of jobs where let you know as a gay could be a problem. Some years ago, the magazine Zero (the main gay publication in Spain) tried to do a reportage about the world of sports and homosexuality: Football clubs like Real Madrid or Barcelona dont even answer back the phonecall.
Also, the level of suicide in teenagers leaving a note they couldnt stand the shame of his sexual condition was surprisingly high not so long ago.
Of course not everything is sad, now it´s possible to get married and have a family, and prejudices among heterosexual people is decreasing. Hopefully in a future not so far...

Take care

PS: About this two, they seems to be very good friends and just a second after this photo they were greeting warmly each other.
