IT is now one of the biggest events in the Spanish social calendar.
A raucous celebration of colour, variety and life, Gay Pride is everything it set out to be and more.
Madrid was overrun with the colours of the rainbow this June, in what was one of the world’s biggest Gay Pride events.
Now Torremolinos is gearing up for the Costa del Sol’s first official Pride festival this month.
It comes in a monumental year for the LGBT+ community worldwide. Gay and lesbian marriage is now legal in every single American state, as of this month.
But that was so last decade for Spain, which this year celebrates the ten-year anniversary of legalised gay marriage. Same sex couples have also been able to adopt children for just as long.
In fact, Spain was ranked the most gay-friendly country in the world by the latest Pew Research Center survey.
But, of course, it has not always been this way, and there is still a long way to go to reach true equality in sexual orientation.
The Olive Press is proud to present its first Gay Pride supplement, the first of what we hope will be a long, line of successful specials, promoting the very best of Andalucia’s LGBT+ community.
