What is parade?

What Does parade Mean

It is called parade to the act of parading : advance training or row. The concept is also used to name what happens when, from a certain place , one person after another leaves, almost constantly.

For example: "To commemorate the birth of the hero, tomorrow there will be a military parade in the Plaza Mayor" , "The fashion show will be broadcast live and direct to the entire country" , "I'm exhausted: the parade of customers by the warehouse did not stop all day ” .
The idea of a parade can be used to name the march that follows a certain route . These marches, which can take place on foot, in vehicles or on horseback, are usually held to celebrate or commemorate an event.

When the parade is carried out by members of the armed forces, they speak of a military parade . Those who parade wear their uniforms, display their insignia and can even hold a display of their weapons .
Military parades often include the participation of a musical band that is responsible for interpreting marches. In this way, the participants advance to the rhythm of the music .
The civic or civil parades , however, are developed by people who do not belong to the army. Sometimes these are demonstrations with social or political content, such as the gay pride parade .
The International Day of Pride LGBTIQ receives several names in everyday speech, many of which omit the acronym for the word "gay", although this is not adequate to cover all groups that represents this celebration year, which has place in many parts of the world on June 28 with the aim of promoting equality and tolerance. The meaning of this acronym is as follows:
* lesbians : people who identify as women and who are attracted (either emotionally, physically or both) by others who also identify as women;
* gays : individuals who identify as men and who, as with lesbians, are attracted to similar ones;
* trans : these are perhaps the members with the most complex sexuality in the parade, since they can be divided into more than one category . On the one hand we have transgender people, those people who feel identified with a different gender than the one assigned to them at the time of their birth. The trans , on the other hand, are also transgenders, but undergo surgery to change sex. The transvestites , finally, dress in clothing that is marketed to individuals of the opposite gender yours;

* bisexuals : they are individuals who can be attracted to men and women;
* intersex : they are those whose genitals and their sex have a discrepancy, so that they present feminine and masculine characteristics ;
* queer : this group includes all those individuals who do not belong to any of the previous categories.
The importance of this parade is that the day on which it is celebrated commemorates the beginning of the homosexual liberation movement, which took place in 1969 after the Stonewall riots , a phenomenon of social demonstration in response to a violent raid by part of the police at dawn in a New York pub. Like many other times in the past and sadly in the decades that followed, the authorities abused their power to unjustly punish a group of homosexuals, simply for not being straight.
A fashion show , on the other hand, is an event that is held with the intention of presenting the collections of apparel designers. The models usually parade on a catwalk, wearing the garments before the public and the cameras.
