This year is the World Pride Madrid 2017 .
The World Pride is an event organized by InterPride that promotes international social, cultural and legal equality related to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT Pride) through parades, festivals and other cultural activities. This year it is up to Madrid to host the World Pride or, what is the same, the LGTB Pride worldwide.
The World Pride 2017 will take place officially from June 23 to July 2 although there are activities organized from March to the end of November.
This event is emerging as an opportunity for Madrid to position itself internationally as a reference LGTB destination.
In the absence of an Olympics that never arrived, Madrid has had few experiences that have helped it demonstrate internationally the ability to celebrate a great event in recent years and is already doing publicity in New York and other cities to spread the World Pride .
According to estimates there will be more than two million visitors during Pride. Mamma Mia!
A few months ago we saw Pride advertising at the bus stops in New York …
The Madrid Pride program will continue to be on the margins of the City Council and will be managed by FELGTB, COGAM and AEGAL (Association of Companies and Professionals for Gays and Lesbians of Madrid).
Although the World Pride Madrid 2017 will have an opening ceremony to the City Council. This makes clear that it will be 100% Madrid pride, only with the opportunity to show the world.
The center will remain the Chueca neighborhood.
From Plaza de Chueca, a symbol of freedom and the rights of the LGTB collective, there are performances, concerts and activities for all audiences.
Here we leave the link to the map where the activities and concerts will be.
