It's getting closer to the most important Pride in Andalucía and the second in Spain, which will be held in Torremolinos between 29th May and 1st June. The town is warming up its engines with an ambitious programme that ranges from musical performances to other cultural activities and, of course, much vindication of LGBT+ rights.

This year, under the slogan 'Embracing cultures, building bridges. Diversity, part of our DNA', as a way of crossing borders with this celebration, it will be "the first touchstone" of the municipality's candidacy to host Europride in 2027. "A candidacy based precisely on the social and cultural dimension, given the history and importance of our town in the struggle for freedoms; and what better way to do it than with the best showcase we have, our Pride," said the mayor of the town, Margarita del Cid, who was accompanied by the councillor for equality, Francisco García; the singer and organiser of 'Fulanita Fest', Javier Ojeda; SUR journalist and Pride presenter, Iván Gelibter; painting teacher at the Universidad Popular de Torremolinos and creator of this year's poster, Diego Alejandro Bartolomé López, and representatives of the organising associations.

In this sense, one of the novelties that Pride will have this year is its sisterhood with 'Fulanita Fest', the lesbian festival in Fuengirola, thanks to the performances of Marlena and Sofía Cristo on Wednesday 29 May, with the aim of giving a female perspective to the event. "In this third edition it has been consolidated as the most important female LGBT+ festival in Spain, without a doubt," Ojeda said.

Wednesday 29 May: opening speech by Toñi Moreno and performance by Marlena

The official start of Pride will take place on Wednesday at midday, in Plaza de La Nogalera, with the unfurling of the rainbow flag. At night, at the Pablo Ruiz Picasso cultural centre, the Pride venue, the opening speech will be given by journalist Toñi Moreno, along with performances of Marlena and Sofía Cristo during a special edition of the Fulanita de Torremolinos. There will also be performances by the Torremolinos LGBT+ choir, Suhaula, Steve Drag and Apotheosika, all presented by Xenon Spain and Iván Gelibter.

Before the official start, at 10am, the documentary, Unstoppable 2, will be screened in the cultural centre. Also, the headquarters of Apoyo Positivo will be open from 10am until 8pm for free tests. This service will also be available on Thursday and Friday during the same hours.

In the afternoon, again at the cultural centre, there will be a talk on LGBT+ stories, focusing on the book, Twisted Cinema. Later, the book, Confessions of a seminarian M4R1C0N, will be presented, which will include the talk, 'How we have changed. The evolution of reality in the community. LGBT+ in Spanish fiction', an activity that will take place in Pub El 12.
