Gay activists in Amsterdam celebrated Christmas with a twist over the weekend.
Pink Christmas featured a live nativity scene with a male Mary in drag.
This "Mary" wears a blonde wig, high-heeled black boots and carries a plastic doll.
A group called Pro Gay organized the event, which also featured booths selling gay-themed holiday cards.
The independent religious group Christians for Truth urged the Amsterdam city council to cancel Pink Christmas.
Opponents said the gay holiday celebration made a mockery of Christmas.
