Shirtless men dancing on floats. Drag queens lip-syncing for their lives. Friends running through the streets with faces smeared in glitter and dressed in rainbow colours!
Pride is as much a party as it is a protest. Often used to highlight issues where LGBTQ citizens are not granted the same rights as their straight peers, such as blood donation, the existence of conversion therapy, or loose discrimination laws, the Pride march is a fantastic way to get society to listen up, and address the issues at hand.
Spain is home to some of the best Pride events in the world. With progressive laws, tolerant citizens, sexy guys everywhere and gorgeous weather, each Pride in Spain is truly, a glorious celebration and we love them all!
Here are our 5 favourite Spain gay Pride events that you need to check out.

1. Madrid Pride
You cannot be a self-respecting gay in this world and not have attended Madrid Pride at least once in your life. The first time we experienced Madrid Pride, we were blown away by the sheer scale of it. Everyone in the whole city gets involved. It’s so inspiring to be a part of.
Madrid is not only the largest Pride in Spain but one of the biggest Pride events in the world. The week leading up to it sees exciting parties (both indoor and out), music performances, artistic showcases, LGBTQ walking tours and tons of drag-gy brunches!
