Gay MADRID & What you need to know!

A short guide to planning a successful gay holiday in Madrid.

Madrid Gay Pride

Madrid is home to one of the world’s largest gay pride marches with more than 1 million people attending the event each year at the end of June.

Madrid is one of the top gay capitals in Europe with more than 3 million inhabitants. Less touristy than Barcelona and some would say more authentically Spanish, the city is the home to some of the biggest gay parties in the world, including Madrid Pride and the famous WE Party which hosts the world famous Summer Pride and New Years Eve festivals each year.

The city has long been a cultural centre and is the birthplace of the Movida Madrileña or Madrid Movement, a movement that celebrated freedom of expression and transgression of taboos imposed by the Franco regime.

The city’s Museo del Prado is home to some of the most important works of art in the world including Botticelli and Goya, while the Museo Reina Sofía, is home to Spain’s sons of modern art including Dalí, Miró and Picasso.

The centre of gay life in the city is the famous Chueca dstrict. Here you will find most of the gay cafes, bars and shops. The larger parties move around the city from year to year in larger venues capable of accommodating 5,000+ partygoers at a time.

Major gay parties and festivals include Sleazy Madrid in Spring, the Mad Bear weekend in December and of course Madrid Gay Pride in early July.

  • The Gay District

    Chueca is the heart of Madrid’s gay district. The area is dotted with charming cafes, avant garde shopping and small but busy gay bars with packed dance floors and handsome and somewhat Macho Madrid men. View our insiders guide.

  • Madrid Weather

    Madrid has very warm Summers – as high as 40 degrees Celsius, so pack light. (It is not uncomfortably humid however). Winters can get quite chilly, especially in the evenings – possibly why the dance floors are quite small and packed late at night. Check the weather before you go.
