A SQUARE in Madrid’s Chueca neighborhood will be renamed after Spanish gay rights activist Pedro Zerolo.

Following a Madrid Town Hall vote, all but the PP party approved the notion as a result of costs.

Zerolo died in June 2015 of pancreatic cancer after serving as a crucial gay rights advocate, lawyer and politician on behalf of the National Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Transsexuals and Bisexuals.

The naming of the square in the heart of Madrid’s gay district follows a change.org petition with 84,800 signatures gathered in just one month.
