The Austrian Eurofaeries participated in the Rainbow Parade around Vienna’s Ringstraße for the first time. We would like to thank the extremely friendly Cubans, who permitted us to march behind their vehicle!
We gazed into thousands of clicking cameras and believe that our simple and friendly appearance without any delusions of stardom allowed us to win over the hearts of many viewers.
We were especially pleased when two young men came up to us, calling out “You are fantastic! We totally respect you!” We also thought it was great when 50 to 100 young people stepped in behind our “Radical Faeries” banner near the Parliament and marched with us.
To sum it up:
The faeries showed their true colors in Vienna. Now Austria also knows that we exist!
