Gay Spain

Spain has no shortage of major gay events, including some of the world’s largest gay circuit parties, gay bear meetings and one of the largest Gay Pride parades in the world, in Madrid city. We’re talking big! The Barcelona circuit Festival attracts over 10,000 gay guys and Barcelona Girlie Circuit, thousands of lesbians. Hundreds of bears have a picnic at Sitges’ Bears Week, Barcelona’s Bear Pride and Madrid’s Mad.Bear. Madrid Pride runs into the millions. Maspalomas & Torremolinos both hold major gay events.

Spain officially has the best beaches in the world, with the highest number of Blue Flags awarded, than any other country.
