This year marks a decade since the law was passed for civil partnerships in Spain.

The second annual International Day of Transvestism will also be celebrated during the weekend, on July 25.

The association, COLEGA Torremolinos, is dedicating one day out of the four-day festival especially to homosexual and bisexual women.

The first gay bar in Spain, Toni’s Bar, was founded in Torremolinos in 1962 despite Franco’s repressive regime arresting homosexuals until the 1970s.

Torremolinos Gay Pride runs from July 23-26.
