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.

  1. Absolutely disgusting…if I had known about this sort of thing going on there, I most certainly would never have bought three beachfront properties in this Sodom.

  2. To Paul – I don’t know anything about this SEX thing, but I recall that properties in Sodom and Gomorra sold really fast & at high prices after the word got out.. HOLD ON AND SELL HIGH!
