Maspalomas Pride, every May in Maspalomas

The most anticipated event of the year, Maspalomas Gay Pride, begins in May in the south of Gran Canaria. Since 2001 the Gay Pride is organized in Maspalomas, with its registered office the C.C.Yumbo Centrum. Every year, it grows in size and diversity. It all started when the City of San Bartolome de Tirajana, with Dario Jaen at the helm (then a board member of Friends Against AIDS, LGBT group coordinator and secretary of tourism policy, culture and social movements and vice president of GLAY), along with a few Yumbo entrepreneurs, joined forces to create what is now the most crowded event on the island.

Mes de Mayo en Maspalomas

Las fiestas más esperadas llegan en Mayo al Sur de Gran Canaria, el Orgullo Gay de Maspalomas (Maspalomas Pride)! Desde el año 2001 el orgullo gay se organiza en Maspalomas, siendo su sede oficial el C.C.Yumbo Centrum. Cada año crece en tamaño y diversidad. Todo empezó cuando el Ayuntamiento de San Bartolome de Tirajana con Darío Jaén a la cabeza (entonces Miembro directivo de Amigos Contra el Sida, Coordinador del grupo LGBT y Secretario de política turística, cultura y movimientos sociales y vicepresidente de GLAY), junto con unos pocos empresarios de Yumbo, unieron fuerzas para crear el que ahora es el evento más multitudinario de la isla.
