Travel around the best Prides in Spain
4 February, 2019 - Barcelona
Spain is one of the most gay friendly countries in the world. Our territory is full of LGTBI + activities throughout the year, and this 2019 will not be less. During the next twelve months, fun, freedom and diversity await you in abundance. If you are looking for the best Prides in Spain or you are thinking of traveling around the country and want to meet the LGBTI + community, read on, because there are the most important events in the country.
Since 1977, Barcelona has been known for being one of the most committed cities with the LGTBI + community. On June 26 of that same year, following the mobilizations that came from the United States and that traveled all over Europe, four thousand people demonstrated in La Rambla in favor of sexual and gender freedom, mobilizing gays, lesbians, transgender people and Other citizens who wanted to show their solidarity with the collective. Since then Barcelona has never separated from the cause, and its cosmopolitan and inclusive DNA has made PRIDE Barcelona have something different.
During the 2018 edition, 40 years later and already a reference party for the whole city, an image upgrade was carried out for the PRIDE Barcelona brand with vivid and pure colors to convey joy, vindication, positivity and celebration, and launched a campaign with the motto All my loving, linked to refugees. This and a luxury line up made it, with more than 380,000 participants, the most participative edition in history.
This year PRIDE Barcelona will be the speaker of the LGTBI + families with activities, talks and workshops throughout the city. The great novelty will be the Pride Kids section, where the youngest can enjoy a space designed for them.
A bet that joins an open and diverse program; with his traditional career of heels; its manifestation, each year more multitudinous; his concerts on Avenida Maria Cristina and his activities for all citizens.
In short, Barcelona is stronger than ever and plans to beat its own record. So write down your agenda on June 27 and start preparing your visit.

As in the case of Barcelona, 40 years ago of the first demonstration for the rights of the collective in the city and Madrid editions after edition continue to set the bar higher than anyone else. Each year more than 1.5 million people come from all over the world to march and celebrate from the Emperor Carlos V Square, which is considered the largest demonstration in Europe. The state manifestation of this year will go from Atocha to Colón and will fill with color and festive atmosphere one of the main arteries of the Spanish capital.
During the Pride week, the mythical Chueca neighborhood becomes the focus of the city. There, flags and garlands adorn the balconies, while the cobblestones are covered with candy, glitter and lots of confetti.
