Events during Madrid Gay Pride 2012

In the last years the Madrid Gay Pride celebrations have congregated more than two million participants. The traditional multicolor Statewide Demonstration running through the capital serves as the perfect climax to a week full of festivities. The celebration in Madrid has become, by its own right, the most popularized celebration in Spain. Madrid Pride has gone from being a small protest in the 80´s to the enormous event it is today, a moment in which we all come together to celebrate equality and diversity in a festive and fun way, without ever forgetting the LGTB community´s demands for rights.
