This year was my third time attending the amazing Gay Pride of Gran Canaria: and as usual I had a lot of fun!

The actual Gran Canaria Pride 2016 Parade took place on Saturday, May 14th, 2016: it was a colorful show of happiness and gay lifestyle!

This year the Parade was also a success in terms of partecipation: over 20 coaches full of hotties, friends, lovers took part to the parade along Avenida de Tirajana, the main road of Maspalomas!

The Parade itself is like a dress up party: everyone wears what he / she is most comfortable with! It is a display of fun, love, joy!I was wearing what I feel comfortable in, too: my favourite pair of speedos :)

And I have to say my outfit was pretty succesfull! Look at the many hotties and fun groups of friends who asked me to take a picture with them =) My outfit was also in line with the weather: it was a hot sunny afternoon, typical for Gran Canaria!

As usual, the Parade ended up in the Yumbo center, as you already know the center of gay life of Maspalomas! The main stage, set in the middle of the square of the Yumbo, had a line up of singers and performers who entertained the huge crowd from the early afternoon until the early morning of the Sunday after.

Gay Pride in Gran Canaria does not feature only the Parade: the entire week before is full of events and parties to entertain the (each year more and more) visitors! My personal highlights?

On Thursday afternoon, I enjoyed the Pool Party organized in the amazing pool of the AxelBeach Maspalomas Hotel, featuring Myra Dubois. A great occasion to meet up also with old friends from UK and to make a few new friends!

On the Friday afternoon, I had so much fun at the T Dance Party at the Aqua Ocean Club, a beautiful venue overlooking the ocean, a nice walk from the Maspalomas Lighthouse.

Have I convinced you yet about booking your next holiday for Gran Canaria Pride 2017? Feel free to get in touch! We can have a blast together next year!
