First royal reception for LGBT group in Spain

c9efd320-1463-421a-9fa3-174e2f761156.jpg7892f523de5bf6e07b40c4f7688491f5e06d061a77a7bde916b8a91163029d41

Spain’s newly enthroned King Felipe and Queen Letizia broke with tradition on Tuesday by officially receiving representatives from Spain’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) groups at the royal El Pardo palace on Tuesday and highlighting that their work “deserves to be better known and acknowledged”.

Boti Garcia, president of Spain’s State Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Transsexuals and Bisexuals, and José María Núñez-Blanco, president of LGBT rights group the Triangle Foundation, were invited along with representatives of 350 other Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and charities involved with social causes.

García admitted that she had been surprised to receive the invitation, noting: “We have asked more than once for meetings with the vice president of the government and he’s never even answered.”

Spanish daily Publico reported both representatives as having connected better with the queen, who was said to have spent more time with them than the king, and who had highlighted the importance of their presence at such an event. “We felt that our message had been listened to and understood, ” said García.

The attitude of Spain’s new queen stands in stark contrast to that of her predecessor, Queen Sofia, who in 2008 declared herself opposed to same-sex marriages, leading to a statement of protest from the Triangle Foundation.

Las Palmas Pride Parade on Saturday 28 June

c9efd320-1463-421a-9fa3-174e2f761156.jpgrainbow crossing 2

Each year the LGBT community of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria celebrates Gay Pride on the Saturday closest to 24 June, which was the date of the Stonewall protests in New York when drag queens in the Stonewall bar challenged the attacks by the New York Police Department on gay bars. Judy Garland also died on 24 June, who had been an icon for gay and lesbian people across the world, and this news seems to have started this challenge to gain equality for the LGBT community in the USA and the rest of the world.

 

So, in Las Palmas in Gran Canaria on the Saturday closest to this very important day, which in 2014 will be Saturday 28 June, the local LGBT community will hold a Pride Parade starting at 19.00 from Mesa y Lopez and ending in Santa Catalina Park. From 20 to 28 June Collectivo Gama, which is the organisation that supports the LGBT community, will promote LGBT issues.

 

The town hall of Las Palmas has decided to mark this occasion by painting pedestrian crossings in rainbow colours instead of the usual black and white markings around Santa Catalina Park near the port and where the cruise ships dock, and will be the focus of Gay Pride 2014. Well done, Las Palmas and have a great Pride Parade on Saturday 28 June, and enjoy local band Efecto Pasillo who will be performing a concert to celebrate the event.

 

See you there!
