After a year of restrictions due to the Covid19 pandemic, LGBTI Pride is here again! The slogan chosen for this year in Madrid has been “Human rights are not negotiated, they are legislated: comprehensive trans law now”. All the associations are continuing their events full of demands, as they do every year. However, the biggest difference from previous years will be the lack of a festive component.

In today’s post we tell you how LGBTI Pride will be celebrated this year in Madrid so that you don’t miss any of the events. Let’s get started!

Main events

Madrid will be full of commemorative events that will last from the 25th June to the 4th of July. You can check them all out on the Official Tourism Website of the city of Madrid. Here we leave you with the most important ones:

LGBTI Pride Proclamation- Wednesday 30 June

This is the event that kicks off the Pride celebrations. MADO, the Official Website of Pride in Madrid, will be in charge of making a special tribute to the Drag Queens, who are considered the true protagonists of Madrid’s LGBTI identity and, specifically, of the Chueca neighbourhood. For this reason, some of the best known Drag Queens in our country, such as Supremme Deluxe, La Prohibida or Nacha la Macha, among others, will be in charge of giving the opening speech.

Mr. Gay Pride Spain – Thursday, July 1st

Due to security reasons, this year the final of the Mr. Gay Pride contest will have to wait until October. However, MADO doesn’t want to leave us with nothing. That’s why they will make an online presentation of the finalists of the contest that can be followed through the social networks of Mr Gay Pride Spain.

Statewide demonstration – Saturday 3 July

The LGBTI Madrid Pride Parade is the central event of the Pride Festivities. It is always held on the first Saturday in July and goes through the city of Madrid, from Atocha to Plaza de Colón. Normally, this event is charged with a festive component and is characterised by the parade of floats.

However, this year there will be no floats, there will be limited seating and it will be compulsory to wear a face mask when the safety distance cannot be respected. The parade will start at 8 pm and will follow the same route as usual, but with the aforementioned measures.

In addition to all the events that will fill the city of Madrid, LGBTI Pride will also be celebrated in other major cities in Spain, such as Barcelona, Valencia and Seville. And remember, whoever you love, Madrid loves you. Happy Pride!
