On June 28, 1970, a year after the riots in New York, Brenda Howard organized the first gay pride march in that city. In Europe, the first gay march was held on April 29, 1972, in Münster, Germany.
In Mexico, the first gay pride march took place in June 1978, eight years after the first in the United States.
Why is it still important to celebrate Gay Pride Day?
The world has been celebrating Gay Pride Day for over 50 years. Although in many countries a lot has been gained in the field of LGBT+ rights, this celebration is super important to remember all the people discriminated in the past and to fight for those who are still denied rights, equality and good treatment.
The fight is not over, it continues. Every day we fight for it, but on Gay Pride Day we go crazy to make our voices heard and celebrate being part of this energetic community full of love and respect.
This year 2021 Vallarta Pride is back with a full week to celebrate sexual diversity with parties, artistic events, music and, of course, with our incredible parade that goes through the malecon and that every year is more spectacular. Learn more about this great LGBT+ celebration
that will bring together people and artists from all over the world.
From May 24th to May 31st downtown Puerto Vallarta will be filled with rainbows and at Blue Chairs Resort by The Sea we are waiting for you to offer you the best gay lodging experience and celebrate together our great pride.
