from June 23rd to July 2nd
Already one of the world’s largest LGBT celebrations, this year, for the first time, our city plays host to both EuroPride and WordPride simultaneously. The WorldPride parade will kick-off at 5pm on Saturday 1st from Atocha through Paseo de Recoletos to Plaza Colón, with the organisers expecting 2 million people to take part over the duration of the celebrations.
But, it is more than just the parade. A crucial part is the LGBT human rights summit running from 26th to 28th June, at the Univsersity Autónoma de Madrid, as well as the Prado museum presenting a ground-breaking exhibition, “The Other’s Gaze: Spaces of Difference”, which takes a fresh look at 30 works in its own permanent collection through an LGBT-focused lens.
