Thousands of gay rights activists march in parades in Rome and Milan

Tens of thousands of gays and rights activists have marched in the streets of Rome and Milan in colorful "Gay Pride" parades.
The demonstrators, some carrying rainbow flags and flamboyant costumes, others singing and dancing, have criticized the Vatican for its opposition to same sex-unions. Activists at the march Saturday held up anti-Vatican banners.
The demonstrators also attacked the conservative government of Premier Silvio Berlusconi after the minister of equal opportunities refused to back pro-gay rights demonstrations.
Mara Carfagna caused a stir last month when she said that the "Gay Pride" marches were pointless as gays no longer suffer discrimination.
