  • Rincón de la Victoria town hall hopes to "inform and give greater visibility to the LGTBI+ collective"

Rincón de la Victoria has been holding a series of activities this week in the lead up to today's LGBTI+ Pride day, which is being held across the globe to mark the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots in New York on 28 June 1969.

Speaking at the progamme launch on Monday, deputy mayor, Antonio Fernández, said the objective of the week was to, "inform and give greater visibility to the LGTBI+ collective," and that people should be able to "live with pride and dignity."

Three LGTBI+ activists will be recognised in a gala event today.
