SAO PAULO (AP) -- The city council of South America's biggest city has adopted legislation calling for a Heterosexual Pride Day to be celebrated on the third Sunday of each December.
"The celebration of heterosexual pride is inappropriate because it belittles the just cause of the LGBT community," the statement added. "Unlike homosexuals, heterosexuals are not discriminated against simply for being heterosexuals."

If we really need a parade to celebrate sexuality, then the equality extends to heteros just as much as to the homos.
Not so much for those into animals...gotta draw a line somewhere.

Heterosexual pride has been celebrated for millennia in the form of fertility rites.
The name of the parade may be controversial but the concept is not.

i don't think you can be proud of something you haven't any control over, like being born in a particular country or having a particular sexuality.. unless you're proud of an actual achievement, something that can be credited to your own free will, it's just blatant egotism in my book..edit on 8/8/11 by mzungu because: (no reason given)
