Cape Town Gay Pride – The Globetrotter Guys

Cape Town Gay Pride - The Globetrotter Guys

Gay Pride in Cape Town was not what we expected at all! It really is quite unique compared to many of the other gay pride events we have been to and we highly recommend you add it to your pride bucket-list.

We found Cape Town Pride to be so unique because of the people. We have never seen such a diverse and inclusive crowd of people at a pride festival! Most pride festivals we have been to have been 95% men (which of course is nice for us!), however this is not the case for Cape Town gay pride at all.

There is an even spread across all genders, age, sexuality and race – everyone is well represented which of course is what pride is about. We spoke with the Festival Director of Pride, Matthew Van As and he explained that there is a common misconception that Cape Town Pride is going to be just a festival full of the stereotypical white male crowd – the reality is completely different and as a result Cape Town Pride had a very diverse and local feel to it!

Lets take a look at all you need to know about Cape Town Gay Pride and let us convince you to get yourself booked for next year!

Gay Cape Town – The Vibrant Heart of Africa

Author: , December 1st, 2014

cape-town-apple-mapsYou have to be kidding me!’ he says, a confident smile spreading across his Latino face

‘Why?’ I reply, a touch surprised.

‘You’ve come to the most beautiful city in the world and you’re only staying for a week? Change your plans. Give her two weeks at least. Let her work her magic with you…’

Franco should know. He came to Cape Town from Buenos Aires four years ago for what was meant to be a short break. Three weeks later he lost his heart to the Mother City – and a local lad – and has only been back to his homeland twice since.

I pick up where I left off. ‘What I was going to say was I lost my heart to this city a long time ago already…’

In fairness, it’s pretty easy to fall head over heels for Cape Town. Yours truly fell in love with the city some 15 years ago, and lived there for over eight years. A colourful metropolis on the south-westerly tip of the African continent, Cape Town has a way of getting under your skin and pulling you back to its golden shores, rugged mountain backdrop and azure breakers time and time again. It’s a city of jaw-dropping beauty, bizarre contrasts and one that boasts the most liberal outlook on life in South Africa, and the rest of the continent.
