    Title reads: "Paris Goes Gay".

    Student rag parade in Paris, France.

    Students celebrate the traditional Bizuth Baptism. Various shots of outrageous art students in fancy dress walking or riding on horse drawn carts through the streets. C/U of a student dressed as Mr Gladstone. C/U of students dressed as bridge and groom, embracing as they walk along. Various shots the "christening" ritual in the Place de la Concorde. Students lie on the ground whilst others tip paint and rice on them and tickle them! Great shots of high spirited young people enjoying themselves. Some of the costumes are quite revealing - item ends with C/U of young man daubed in paint, naked apart from pair of tiny pants!
