How does a pink Christmas sound?

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) - December 22, 2008

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.
