Text:Aucklander Steve Berry-Smith was lucky enough to be in Rome for Pride in June. He’s kindly sent us some pictures for your viewing pleasure. “I was totally blown away by the number of people, over 300,000, who actually marched for the long hot trek through the centre of Rome,” Berry-Smith says. “It was about 30 degrees that day and was opened by the Mayor of Rome, Ignazio Marino."   The pictures from near the Coliseum, also the location of a couple of bars, and a pre parade street party had been underway for most of the day. “The parade arrived there at about 5.30 in the afternoon and I think it had started at about 2.30 several kilometres away." “Was a great sight to see and the atmosphere totally buoyant and fun as one would expect from a Pride Parade.” Steve Berry-Smith - 7th July 2014
