Winter Pride Maspalomas 2023: Queers Converge on Spain’s Grand Canary Island

If you’re anywhere near Gran Canaria, Spain right now, you may want to head to Winter Pride Maspalomas! The week-long celebration – November 6-12, 2023 – will celebrate diversity, inclusivity, and the freedom to express yourself authentically, which follows this year’s theme, “Show Your True Colors.” You can check out the 2023 Anthem, “True Colors,” by Sharon O’Love featuring Soraya Vivian below to get you in a festive mood! 

During the first full week of November, hundreds of LGBTQ+ revelers converge on Spain’s Canary Island, located off the northwestern coast of Africa. Maspolamas is on the southern tip of the Island, which is also known for its black lava and white sand beaches, but this week it’s all about Pride, which will include live performances, pool parties, boat cruises, and the Pride Walk, set for Saturday, November 11 along Avenida de Tirajana. 

The Pride celebration kicked off yesterday with a Winter Carnaval that included a Queen tribute concert. An 80s concert at Hotel Ritual’s Club Tropicana, Disco Inferno entertainment on the Yumbo Main Stage, XXX Boat Trip for Men Only, Candyland at Blue Marlin Skylounge, Glitter Night, a Sunday T-Dance, and so much more!
