Matt Skallerud Does World Pride Madrid 2017 | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

My adventures with World Pride 2017 in Madrid started upon arrival on Wednesday evening, June 28th, when Richard and I arrived in Madrid and got ourselves settled in at the cozy Marriott Princesa hotel. We immediately headed on down to the Chueca area of Madrid, where we met up with our friends for dinner and drinks, just to get ourselves started and oriented on the Madrid way of life!

The Spanish capital will host the international celebration as well as the Euro Pride event
Matt Skallerud's insight:

Madrid will be the world’s proudest city in 2017. For the first time, the Spanish capital will serve as the host for the international LGBTQ World Pride event, as well as for Euro Pride. “It’s very important, because it’s never been done before – it’s the first time these two events are being celebrated in the same city,” says Juan Carlos Alonso, president of World Pride Madrid 2017’s planning committee. Last Sunday, Alonso and Javier Garrigues, Spanish consul in Amsterdam, received the baton of Euro Pride from the Netherlands on August 7. In July, Madrid Mayor Manuela Carmena officially took over the responsibility of World Pride 2017.

15 Reasons Why You Should Attend WorldPride Madrid

15 Reasons Why You Should Attend WorldPride Madrid | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

Madrid is without a doubt our favorite place in the world. We’ve been living here for 3 years and we couldn’t be happier to call the Spanish capital home. On a recent trip back to the states, we had the pleasure to attend a World Pride Madrid pre-party with amazing hosts (yes drag queens!), fabulous guests and a particularly Spanish flare not often found in New York City. The event was intended to introduce Madrid and World Pride to the US audience, who for reasons we can’t quite figure out, don’t fully know about Madrid and it’s reputation as a gay friendly destination.
