Pride 2018

PRIDE Barcelona is an event for everyone, a space where collectively we can can be heard and become visible, a place to celebrate and make a stand. From here we want to send a message to the world:

We have to love ourselves more. We have to love the outsiders, the people around us, those who are different from us and also those who think differently from us. We also have to show more respect for ourselves, it is because love has thousands of shapes and colours. Many times that’s the only thing we need. A little bit of love. A hug. A smile.

Barcelona has always been a city with an open heart and respect for diversity. We cannot forget about this. It’s time to get this feeling back. We want to gout out and scream that there is love for everyone. No matter who you are, no matter where you come from, this is for you.

LGBTI Refugees

In more than 80 countries, something so normal here as being LGTBI, falling in love with someone of the same sex, or daring to be yourself is cause for persecution, torture, imprisonment and even assassination attempts. Many people in this situation only have the option to run away and seek asylum in another country in search of a better future. Did you know that some of these victims are refugees in Barcelona? This is the reality and we can not look the other way.

testimonials
"Here I feel that my life is no longer in danger. As a person I have rebuilt myself, now I am more self confident in myself and I have hope. I want to communicate that our life has not been easy, but we are courageous people and we are fighting, we seek to move forward and be treated with respect and equality. That’s why the support of the people here is very important.”

Carolina, LGTBI refugee in Barcelona

You can help them

LGTBI refugees need resources, psychological support, learn a language, understand our culture, company, etc. And they are very close to you. Would you like to collaborate? Contact the ACATHI association and they will inform you how to do it. Together, we can help them start a new life.

Team

PRIDE BCN was born as an initiative of ACEGAL and it has an Organizing Committee formed by more than 20 people with a common mission: to raise awareness, defend, educate and celebrate diversity.

Entities

Behind PRIDE BCN we have the support of more than 35 entities related to social, cultural and sports environment, family and health that work so that Barcelona continues to be a reference city for the LGTBI collective.

The soul and heart of PRIDE BCN is also completed by more than 300 volunteers who selflessly make this project possible with their energy and dedication. Thanks to everyone!

History

Barcelona hosts every summer, since 2008, the main LGBTI pride celebration in the Mediterranean: PRIDE BCN. For more than a week, the city celebrates an event of both a protesting and a festive nature, reinforcing the commitment of Barcelona with the struggle for the rights and freedoms of the LGTBI collective. More than 250,000 people come every year, making it one of the most popular Prides in Europe.

PRIDE BCN offers a program for everyone. We can find large events such as the Pride Parade or mass concerts, and also social and cultural activities such as conferences, talks, movies or exhibitions. And of course there is also space for families and proposals for the little ones. All supported by a great volunteering team that makes this experience all possible.

In our fight for LGTBI rights every year we commit ourselves to a social cause to provide visibility, create awareness and generate debates. These have been some of the main themes of the previous years:

Prides Friends

In PRIDE BCN we think that strength comes in numbers, and we also think that we have many reasons to continue campaigning and celebrating Pride, and not only in Barcelona. That’s why we want to invite you to participate in our Prides Friends. Take notes!
