From May 20 to June 28, 2023, the Catalan capital will hold a series of events to celebrate LGTBI Pride Day, with the programs “Orgull de Museus” and “Orgull de Barri”. For this reason, activities will be held in squares, libraries, civic centers and museums in the city.
Globally, June is considered to be the month of LGTBI pride.
Therefore, Barcelona joins the celebration with a wide variety of activities and proposals to promote sexual and gender diversity and defend the rights and freedoms of LGTBI groups.
Among the highlights of the celebrations is the ‘Migrantour route LGTBI route’ in the district of Sants-Montjuïc, which seeks to give visibility to the experience of LGTBI migrants in the city.
There will also be a party called ‘Festa Esbiaixada’, a performative show called ‘Proveta de diversidad’ at the Sant Martí civic center and the Empodera’t Festival led by women artists at Sala Montbau.
In addition, the ‘Orgull de Museus’ initiative will include guided tours of the exhibition ‘Sade.
With these and other activities, we seek to create spaces for meeting and reflection on sexual and gender diversity in the city.
LGTBI Pride Day in Barcelona
The celebration of LGBTI Pride in Barcelona will end with a massive concert at the Moll de la Fusta on June 28th with ‘L’Orgullosa’.
This event will be attended by artists and prominent personalities who support the struggle for the rights of LGTBI collectives and who have contributed to make visible the problems and demands of this group in the world of art and culture.
In general, the celebration of the International LGTBI Pride Day in Barcelona is a sign of the importance of these events to promote inclusion and equality in society.
These types of events are an opportunity to vindicate the equal rights and freedoms of all people, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
In addition, the ‘Cinema Pride’ festival will screen LGTBI-themed films and documentaries in various cinemas in the city.
Among the films selected are ‘Girl’, a Belgian drama about a transgender dancer struggling to fulfill her dreams.
In Chesil Beach’, a British film that deals with the relationship between two men in the 1960s, and ‘Elisa and Marcela’, a Spanish production that tells the true story of two women who married in Galicia in 1901 disguised as men and women to avoid censorship.
The celebration of International LGTBI Pride Day in Barcelona is an opportunity to promote culture and art as tools for inclusion and respect for difference in the city and the world.
