Did you know that more than 45% of the people interviewed in the Touristic Perception Survey of 2018 recognized LGBTI+ Pride as an icon of the city?
The reason could be found in people of Madrid character: these are not just days for demands and claims, neither a week of party and freedom. For “madrileños”, Gay Pride is the real heartbeat of the city, which gives personality and show visitors that “from Madrid to heaven”, with no doubt.
Words like pride and diversity are inside Nakamad DNA, so we would like to talk about all different gay Madrid you can live here. Because you deserve enjoying the type of gay tourism you feel like enjoy!
PRIDE FOR DEMANDING GAY RIGHTS
Fight for LGTBI+ rights is more alive than ever, so the city will organize events for commemorate Stonewall 50th anniversary; Madrid Summit 2019 wil be also held; you could attend David Wojnarowicz exhibition at Reina Sofía (one of the best museums in Madrid); running Diversity marathon; and, of course, attend the mass demonstration in Madrid centre before Gay Pride Parade.
GAY PRIDE MADRID (2019)
And the funniest gay Madrid dresses up! A whole tribute to freedom and fiesta, which fill the city with music and colour going through the borders of Chueca gay area Madrid. From june 28th to July 7th, you could attend to: the Pride Announcement (with famous pro gay singer Mónica Naranjo); legendary high heles marathon; Mr Gay Pride Spain election; and, of course, the Gay Pride Parade.
LIFE BEYOND GAY PARTY
Fortunately, #lovewins or #madridlovesyou are more than words. So, if Madrid Pride parties are too much for you, you have other gay Madrid to discover:
• Stroll through Madrid neighborhoods: our modern and open-minded Malasana Madrid; the multiethnic Lavapies or the funny La Latina.
• Give it all with Becky G and Ozuna at YOLO Music Festival
• Chill out and have some tapas in any of the Gatoterrazas
• Enjoy to the fullest at Rio Babel fest
• Learn the meaning of spanish word “castizo” in Carmen feasts.
Enjoy our Madrid alternative tour
So many choices for a Madrid alternative tour! However, there´s something you should be aware of: last year, just for Gay Pride, Madrid received 1.5 MILLION TOURISTS. Maybe some journy planning and a little help could be great, even better if help is given by 2 friends from Madrid, don´t you think? You need a (good) plan. You need a nakaplan….
Finally, we wish you a VERY HAPPY PRIDE but not just in July, but the whole year!
Kisses & hugs.
