Thousands of people gathered along the two-mile route. Some spectators cheered; others jeered.

Hundreds of police patrolled the march. The atmosphere was tense, but there were no reports of arrests. At a similar event last year about 140 people were arrested.

Earlier Saturday, supporters of the New Right antigay movement marched to protest homosexuality.
