Image by gerry balding via FlickrI am quite surprised. Some Andalusian media and some press from Madrid have written about EXPOGAYS. But the media from the supposedly gay friendly Barcelona have not said anything. I've been writing about EXPOGAYS for months however but that is not strange because I write quite oft about gay events.
But I am surprised that THE INDEPENDENT talks about this gay fair while in Barcelona nobody says a word except GAY.CAT ...
In Barcelona we have had for two years the PINK CORNER but it is just a part of a fair about tourism held in Barcelona each year.
As anyone can read the Independent article I just will say things that The Independent does not tell you! For example, The Independent seems a bit surprised that such a gay fare can be held in Spain. Well, for me it is not strange at all! In Spain we have gay marriage (very few countries have it even in Europe), Madrid has the largest gay parade in Europe and Torremolinos has been a gay resort even in Franco times!! So, it is not strange that such a fair can be held in Torremolinos at all!
