Celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual, & transgender culture and legal rights such as same sex marriage, Gran Canaria now celebrates 2 yearly Pride events – Maspalomas Pride held around the beginning of May and Winter Pride held around the beginning of November.

Considered as Europe’s Gay paradise, Gran Canaria has earned its reputation of being one of the most important Gay resorts in Europe and our attitude of “live and let live” makes it easy to understand why.

Building up to the important parade, each event host over a week of activities including pool and beach parties, boat events and live music and shows in and around the Yumbo centre.
