Gay Incas?
One thing you will notice in Cusco are the rainbow flags all over the place. Expecially on state monuments in buildings. Being and 80% Catholic latin (machisimo) country, I doubt the gay population is that great.

Actually that is the flag for Cusco. I don't know if it's for the state or the city of Cusco, though.

The Inca's worshipped the rainbow and it was a common docoration in their dress (at the expense of many a macaw, I'm sure.) Cusco was the center of the Inca empire, so I'm sure that's how it got this flag.

I just have to wonder if Peruvians that visit the Castro or other gay cultural centers in the U.S. are really confused seeing all the rainbow flags.
