ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. A convoy of more than 50 floats snaked through central Madrid on Saturday (July 1) amid a carnival atmosphere as part of celebrations marking the WorldPride parade, a celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights that has been held in several cities across the world since its inception in 2000. Politicians from across the political spectrum walked ahead of the parade, passing through the Spanish capital which was decked out in rainbow flags to mark the occasion. The parade took place amid heavy security measures, with a massive police presence throughout Madrid.
