Pride Barcelona 2018 is celebrated from June 23 to 30. The motto of this edition will be #Allmyloving and revindicates the visibility of LGTBI + refugees.

Falling in love with someone of the same sex or claiming who you are justifies persecution, torture, imprisonment or murder in more than 80 countries of the world. A reality that PRIDE Barcelona will remember these  days. From June 23- 30, the streets of the city will be dyed in rainbows to raise awareness about how can locals and visitors help LGTBI + refugees to find a new life.

PRIDE Barcelona has scheduled more than a hundred acts distributed throughout the city, including conferences, free concerts, parties, sports activities and much more. All under a motto of union, All my loving. Here what you can not miss.

Rainbow mapping

On June 28, International LGBTI + Pride Day, emblematic buildings of Barcelona such as Casa Batlló, Hotel W, Las Arenas Shopping Center and El Molino will, once again, be illuminated with the rainbow flag to show their support to the collective. A magic show for the most colorful night of the year.

Free concerts

Between June 29 and 30 artists such as Conchita Wurst (winner of Eurovision 2014), Loreen (winner of Eurovision 2012), Camela or King Jedet to give free concerts (it’s a shame that Netta Barziali is in Madrid, it would have been a great Eurovision combo ). The choice is not casual, since all the artists are entirely involved with the LGTBI + cause.
