Madrid Pride History

Madrid Pride, also known as Orgullo Gay de Madrid or MADO, is an annual LGBTQIA+ Pride festival, and it always takes place on the weekend immediately after June 28 (International Day of LGBT Pride).

Madrid Pride Parade

Due to the oppressive Franco regime in Spain, the first Madrid Pride celebration did not take place until 1977. This first parade was only small, and it was dissolved by the police.

However, in 1978 a Madrid Pride demonstration was authorised- and since then this event has taken place every year, with a growing number of attendees.

Madrid is the European city with the largest number of attendees, receiving more people even than Pride in London or Paris Pride Parade.
