Gay Christmas

Among the many Christmas Markets held around Munich, one of the more unusual is the Pink Christmas Market run by the city's gays. I went last year and was disappointed - apart from a few pink Christmas trees it wasn't that much different from all the other Christmas Markets in town.

Nevertheless, I returned again this year in the company of an Iowa liberal and a Texas conservative to have another look. It was much better. No doubt this was largely down to my fine companions but the drag queen dressed as an angel reciting poems from the central stage was probably also a factor.

Christmas is now a distant memomory and the little booths have been taken down and put away. Now it's time for Silvester - all night parties, gallons of booze and vast quantities of fireworks.
