In a swirl of vibrant, Catalonian-rooted culture, superlative shopping opportunities and groundbreaking architecture, Barcelona separates itself from the rest of Spanish mainland, making the city a truly fascinating place to visit. Additionally, this chic, relaxed city is one of the most liberal parts of a very live-and-let-live, progressive sort of country, making it an ideal destination for gays and lesbians.
For the second time, the capital of Catalonia is getting ready to welcome humongous hoards of party-craving people to one of the most important Gay Prides in the Mediterranean. This glittery-glam-rocking frenzy, which will launch June 27 2010, will display all the diversity that Catalonia offers. Film, culture, entertainment, sports and debates are just a random selection of what this amazing event will offer its participants.
As the cherry on top of this already eventful happening, a parade jam-packed of colorful people and creatively decorated floats will hit the streets of Barcelona. The setting of this parade will be Barcelona’s carrer Sepúlveda and the Avinguda Maria Cristina at the foot of the Palau Nacional. Additonal stardust will be sprinkled as some of Catalonia’s and Spain’s most cherished artics hit the stage to entertain and celebrate the LGBT community. Additionally, a village will be set up with displays of institutions and collaborators, cultural and family activities, sports and parties. More than 100.000 are expected to walk through this entertainment, social and shopping area, making this a perfect occation to socialize with the thousands and thousands of both local and international visitors of this splendid festivity.
