Puerto Vallarta’s Third Annual Gay Pride ended on May 25 with great success and the committee is already looking to Gay Pride 2016.
The Grand Marshals for this year’s event were Morganna Love and fashion designer Andrew Christian, both agreeing to take on the additional responsibilities after a last minute cancellation by Lea DeLaria from “Orange is the New Black.”
“I have been treated as a queen, I love Puerto Vallarta and I do not want to leave. Thank you for everything,” said Morganna Love about the event.
Andrew Christian and his models Topher DiMaggio, Pablo Hernandez, Diego Sans and Cheddy participated in a successful fashion show
The gay pride parade with the theme of ‘Unity’ saw 10,000 participants where Casa Cupula, Palmera Vacations, Spartacus, Reinas, Paco’s Ranch, La Cueva, Flowers to Go, Embassador of Pride, and Animando Dog Concierge all won honors for their parade entries in their class.
The final Party at the Park Lazaro Cardenas was headed by acclaimed DJ José Spinnin and with performances by DJ Marko, Diamante Negro, Diva Divine, Las Gemelas de Vallarta, Juan Pablo Hernandez, Victoria Volkoba, Loyola, Luis Roberto Perez and directly from Spain, La Prohibida.
This year’s Vallarta Pride event also included numerous art and cultural events, including the Art Exhibition “Unity” at Galería Omar Alonso, which will continue showing until June 18, 2015.
