Out and proud
THOUSANDS of people took part in the Pride parade in Valencia city centre on Saturday, including regional president Ximo Puig and his deputy, Mónica Olta.
They said hey were ‘proud’ of the tolerance shown by the people of the Valencia region over issues affecting the LGTBI collective. Both politicians stated that they had wanted to take part in a ‘day of freedom’, which showed the ‘recovery, little by little, of rights that have been lost’.
Sr Puig said: “A large majority of people understand diversity and want to live their lives in freedom - and want other people to be able to do the same.”
