Gay Pride Madrid 2024: what it’s like, programme and dates

Gay Pride Madrid is one of the most vibrant and eagerly awaited events of the year in the Spanish capital. Every year, thousands of people gather in the well-known Chueca neighbourhood to celebrate diversity, equality and pride for the LGTBI community.

When is Pride 2024?

Madrid Pride 2024, also known as MADO’24, will take place from Friday 28 June to Sunday 7 July 2024. The event will culminate with the LGBTIQ+ Pride Statewide Demonstration, a highlight event that brings together people of different backgrounds and orientations to celebrate diversity and promote the visibility of the LGBTIQ+ community.

Evolution of the event since 1978

The history of Gay Pride Madrid dates back to 1978, when a group of LGBT+ activists organised the first annual celebration to commemorate the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York. Since then, the event has evolved enormously, becoming one of the most significant events for the LGBT+ community in Spain and worldwide.

As Pride has gained popularity, it has served as a platform to address important issues related to LGBT+ rights and equality. It has also highlighted issues such as equal marriage, same-sex adoption and the fight against discrimination in various fields.
