Civil associations, private companies and the entire LGBTTIQ community comes together again to organize this event during fifteen days, which aims to honor and promote the culture and respect for sexual diversity in the city, the region and the state Jalisco. The main events are free, popular and non-for-profit to show the world once again the best of Puerto Vallarta.
