Vietnam, gay marriage advocate?

Macy's balloon, 2010 Mpls Pride Parade

You are right to think that this picture was not taken in Vietnam; it was taken during the 2010 Minneapolis Pride Parade. Vietnam, I learned last night, may become the first Asian country to legalize gay marriage. According to the Huffington Post article, it may be  thanks in part to the state media, which has had the flexibility to explore LGBT issues over the past few years because of the restrictions it faces in covering other news. On August 5, Hanoi will host Vietnam’s first Pride Parade.
