|Ready for the Gay Pride Parade?|
As we turned into Boulevard Saint Michel, we saw dozens of police cars and vans, and then heard and saw the beginning of the march. We watched it for quite a while, but I think it lasted all afternoon. We went on to a fabulous Chagall exhibit at the Musee de Luxembourg, and it was just finishing when we left the museum at around 5 PM.

|Marchers were organized into groups according to organizations they belong to.|
Many were special LGBT groups, others in leftist organizations.
|Police with riot shields were on the sidewalk, just in case any anti-gay attackers showed up.|
