About Lisbon Gay Pride

Lisbon Gay Pride, officially known as Arraial Lisboa Pride, is actually two distinct events taking part on different days. Unlike most gay pride events, in Lisbon, the gay parade happens first.

The Lisbon Gay Pride Parade (Marcha do Orgulho LGBT) takes place on 16 June and the Lisbon Gay Pride (Arraial Lisboa Pride) is happening on 23 June. It features a Pride Village with stands, bars, stage, DJs and dancefloor. The good news is entry is free.

 

Program of Lisbon Gay Pride

In 2018 the Lisbon Gay Pride (Marcha do Orgulho LGBT) will kick off on Saturday 16 June 2018 at 17:00. The parade begins at Jardim do Príncipe Real in Bairro Alto and ends on Praça do Comércio. The parade route passes by the river Tagus, offering some stunning views of the city.

A week later, Lisbon Gay Pride (Arraial Lisboa Pride) starts on 23 June and runs twelve hours, from 16:00pm until 04:00am. It's held at Terreiro do Paço.

In the week leading up to the main day, Lisbon Gay Pride also puts on special exhibitions, events, club nights and parties.
