British Prime Minister's Wife Joins 1000s at Gay Pride Parade

The wife of British Prime Minister Gordon Brown
has joined thousands of revelers in London's annual gay pride
march.

Sarah Brown held a red, white and pink version of the Union Jack
as the noisy parade wound through the city center before a rally
and concert in Trafalgar Square.

Everyone from drag queens to firefighters and soldiers in
uniform joined the parade, organized by lesbian, gay, bisexual and
transgender groups.

Earlier, organizers met the Browns outside 10 Downing St.

The prime minister said Britain had made "massive strides
towards equality," including the introduction of civil
partnerships for gay couples. These have the same legal status as
marriage, but some campaigners want the word marriage to apply to
both gay and straight couples.
