Do you find "these people" in groups? or are they alone? do "these people" share customs? like clothing? music? language? beliefs? I just want to know if it is a well defined group? or just some people doing something in an occasional way?

Are they homosexuals? sellers?

Do you find "these people" in groups? Yes! or are they alone? {Sometimes they sure are, but that is not relevant to the puzzle} do "these people" share customs? like clothing? music? language? beliefs? I just want to know if it is a well defined group? or just some people doing something in an occasional way? See below

Are they homosexuals? Indeed - well done sellers? So, no

******* SPOILER *******

While discussing with a friend a few days ago about various 'protest' movements across the social spectrum, I expressed my long time amazement about the gay parades. While having nothing against them, I am always surprised about the way they tend to manifest their position, which I think is more causing contempt than sympathy, especially in a traditional Eastern Europe. I still don't get it....

but the puzzle was solved, thanks to Lena, Matt and others who joined along the road.
