Men take on the cobbles in stilettos for Madrid Gay Pride race

Men take on the cobbles in stilettos for Madrid Gay Pride race
- Men taped stiletto-heeled shoes to their feet and raced down a narrow cobbled street in Madrid on Thursday as part of the city's Gay Pride festival, one of the world's largest LGBT pride celebrations.
Competitors in the annual male-only event made the precarious dash under rainbow bunting and cheered on by crowds clutching pink balloons who lined the street in Chueca, a gay neighbourhood in central Madrid.
Rules state that mens' heels must be at least 10 cm (4 inches) high and the shoes are measured before the race.
