Over 250,000 people attended Barcelona Pride Parade 2018, making it one of the biggest gay events in Barcelona.
Thousands of people have taken to the streets of central Barcelona for this year’s Pride Parade dedicated to LGBT refugees.
Demonstators marched accompanied by sunsine, music, floats and festive vibes in the main event of this year’s Pride Barcelona, in a carnivalesque atmosphere mixed with a sense of justice and freedom of expression filled the air.
Pride organizers' manifesto says:
We have to love ourselves more. We have to love the outsiders, the people around us, those who are different from us and also those who think differently from us. We also have to show more respect for ourselves, it is because love has thousands of shapes and colours. Many times that’s the only thing we need. A little bit of love. A hug. A smile.
Barcelona has always been a city with an open heart and respect for diversity. We cannot forget about this. It’s time to get this feeling back. We want to gout out and scream that there is love for everyone. No matter who you are, no matter where you come from, this is for you.
Happy Barcelona Pride!
