Each year the grand finale of Gay Pride is the parade, which celebrates diversity with an explosion of colours, music and good times on the floats that pass slowly through the crowds of people who come to see this fabulous spectacle, both members of the LGBT community and its supporters. The festivities start at 4pm at Plaça Espanya with a show presented by Karla and DJ Vanessa Cruz. Once that’s over, the parade moves off down Avinguda Paral·lel, then along Portal de la Pau and Passeig Colom as far as Moll de la Fusta. At 7pm, there’ll be a live performance by Mrs Glow Band, and at 7.30pm, the reading of this year’s manifesto (www.pridebarcelona.org/en/manifest). At 8pm, the closing party kicks off, hosted by Shimai (Sharonne and Kyra) and with live performances by Lara Sajen (who’ll sing the official Pride 2016 theme ‘Poderosa’ (‘Powerful’)), Barei, Kate Ryan, Kym Mazelle, Verónica Romero, Sacrlettes and the DJs Trend Twins, Rafha Madrid and Soren Luka. A great day of fun and games, although with a serious message, and everybody’s invited!
