Torrevieja will be celebrating the first official Pride event, supporting the LGTBIQ+ community, as organised by the local “Torrevieja Diversa” association, with the support of the town hall, despite the growing collaboration between the PP and the homophobic Vox political group, making good on the promise of the Mayor, Eduardo Dolón, after Torrevieja town hall under the management of the PP was itself renowned as being homophobic, even resulting in a very famous Spanish singer refusing to perform as a result of the gay slurs and insults led by the former, and now criminal mayor, Pedro Hernandez Mateo, the mentor of Eduardo Dolón.
Pride 2023 will take place from June 28 to July 9 in Torrevieja, at the end of Pride Month, celebrated globally.
The events will begin next Wednesday, June 28, with the institutional celebration of the International LGTBI Pride Day in the Plaza de la Constitución, at 11:00 a.m., with the placement of the flag and the reading of the manifesto.
On Saturday, July 1, at 7:30 p.m. at the Virgen del Carmen Cultural Centre, the first edition of the “Laguna Rosa” Awards Gala will take place.
