Ibiza Gay Pride Festival 2017 dates announced

The Ibiza Gay Pride 2017 will be held from June, 14th to 17th 2017, as it has been announced this morning by the event director and president of the association Ibiza LGTB, Antonio Balibrea, who is confident that this year they will exceed the 3,000 visitors that attended the events last year .

Both Balibrea and the vice president of the Consell, Marta Díaz, insist that the objective of this celebration is not so much the party as to increase the visibility of the collective LGTB (lesbian, gay, transsexual and bisexual), something in which, unfortunately, is still much to do.

Balibrea points out that they are still closing both the program and budget for this year’s Pride, but he has anticipated that, as in 2016, there will be exhibitions, performances, conferences and theater.

In fact, it indicates that, in view of last year’s success, the companies that participated in 2016 (Akrobatik and Es Devessai) are preparing something together. The culmination of the Ibiza Gay Pride 2017 will be the parade, which this year will be held again on Saturday.

Balibrea hopes that the shops and establishments of Ibiza will be “involved” in the celebration, which they would like to extend to other municipalities of the island, and fill “color” the city decorating their establishments.

Ibiza will bring the Ibiza ‘pride’ to the International Tourism Fair of Madrid (Fitur), next week in order to re-position the island among one of the main gay tourism destinations, says Balibrea.
