Several Spanish LGBTQI+ groups have organized Pride festivities in Barcelona from Thursday, June 27, to Saturday, June 29, to support equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex people. A march is scheduled for Saturday, June 29, beginning at Tres Xemeneies Park at 52 Av. Del Parallel at 18:00 (local time) and will proceed to Maria Cristina Avenue.
Other associated activities are planned each day throughout the city, which will likely cause several road closures and associated transportation disruptions. Heightened security measures and traffic disruptions are expected around all Pride Week events. Counterprotests by socially conservative groups are also possible during the celebrations.
Individuals in Barcelona are advised to remain vigilant, report suspicious objects and behavior to the police, follow instructions issued by local authorities, and avoid all gatherings as a precaution.
