Pretoria - the Pink City

When anyone mentions the Pink Rand, I automatically think of Cape Town as the Pink City. The tolerance and general gayness just seems so much....more....in Cape Town.

The Cape Town gay person is loads of fun, full of life, full of opinions and generally totally gay.

The Pretoria gay person is also loads of fun and full of life and totally gay. But in the Afrikaans community, being gay is definately a sin and goes against the natural order of things. It's ok to be gay, as long as you don't come out the closet.

Until now. Next Saturday the 15th, at one of the holiest of holy Afrikaans monuments, the gay and lesbian community in Pretoria are "coming out" in style!

So if you find yourself anywhere near the Voortrekker Monument, and have 5o bucks to spare, join them! There's going to be a Pink Market! I might just go for the shopping and forget the entertainment.
