I have seen the Liberal future and it is here

Yesterday I was passing through Cologne (as one does) and, with a couple of hours to spare between trains, left the station and walked into the nearest pub, the cavernous Alt Köln.

I also walked inadvertently into the city's three-day
gay pride festival.

As I sat among the fake oak beams, nursing a glass of the local
kölsch beer, a man aged at least 60 walked in to the bar, wearing only a black leather thong held up with some sort of black leather harness. He chatted amiably with some of the waiters and no-one batted an eyelid.

Which is how it should be.
