Spain is one of the most gay-friendly countries in the world, as demonstrated by the wide range of different LGBTIQA+ festivals and activities here. These events are full of colour, are usually held outdoors, include interesting cultural options, and most important of all, everyone is there to have a good time.
Madrid Pride (MADO) is celebrated in the Chueca district during LGBTIQA+ Pride Week. The festival is held alongside the largest demonstration in Europe, which takes place on the first Saturday of July. It’s a unique opportunity to celebrate Pride in Madrid. Be sure to check out Contiki’s Spain Pride Trip, which parties at 2 Pride parades in Barcelona & Madrid.
