Vallarta Pride will take place from May 17th through May 25th with the theme of “Unity,” organizers announced Tuesday.
Gay pride is an event held around the world in many cities throughout the year, however typically in the Spring. The celebration brings together gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people to celebrate their diversity and bring attention to work that still needs to be done globally for human and equal rights.
Vallarta’s Pride event is organized by local businesses through ACT LGBT, the gay business association in Puerto Vallarta, and the GLBT community. Vallarta Pride 2015 will be the third annual Gay Pride event in Puerto Vallarta.
ACT LGBT says the theme “Unity” was chosen to highlight the importance of people coming together as one without the labels.
Pride Vallarta 2015 will host activities throughout the city, with all main events being free to the public, and the official Gay Pride Parade on May 23rd. Other events will include art showing, concerts, and GLBT film screenings.
People from all walks of life are invited to participate in Pride Week activities and celebrate the diversity of Puerto Vallarta that attracts people from around the world to live in Unity around the Bay of Banderas.
