The Madrid Gay Pride – known as Orgullo Madrid in Spain – features by far the largest gay parade in Europe and one of the biggest in the world.
Each year Madrid Gay Pride attracts an incredible 2 million people, cramming into the streets of the Spanish capital to party and celebrate LGBT life. Around a quarter of those attending Madrid Gay Pride are visiting from abroad.
The official Madrid Gay Pride Parade for 2018 is confirmed for Saturday, July 7. The lively festivities will start at 5pm at Atocha Station and finish at around midnight at Plaza de Colón. But don't think the fun is going to stop at midnight. There will be plenty of parties which will continue throughout the night, so be sure to pace yourself.
As usual, Madrid Gay Pride's cultural program in the run-up to the Parade will include plenty of art exhibitions, readings, cabaret, drag shows, the famous high heels race down calle Pelayo and (the very popular) Mr Gay Pride Spain contest.
And let’s not forget all the parties and late-night revelry which Madrid is famous for: just another reason why Madrid Gay Pride is such a big hit with LGBT travelers!
