Guadalajara Pride is one of the biggest and most vibrant LGBTQ+ fiestas held in all of Latin America, and you better believe you'll be smelling some sweet, sweet roses.

Guadalajara Pride, also known as Marcha de la Diversidad Sexual de Guadalajara, is an annual celebration of the fabulous LGBTQ+ community in Guadalajara, Mexico. The event brings together people from all over the city to celebrate diversity, love winning, and of course acceptance by society.

Guadalajara Pride has grown to become one of the largest and most popular pride events in all of Mexico. The event is held in the beginning of June, which is Pride Month, and it typically lasts for several days.


The history of Guadalajara Pride is rooted in the struggle for LGBTQ+ rights in Mexico. In the early 1970s, a group of gay activists formed the Frente de Liberación Homosexual de México (Homosexual Liberation Front of Mexico) to fight for their rights. The group organized several protests and demonstrations, including the first-ever pride march in Mexico City in 1978.

Since then, the LGBTQ+ community in Mexico has made significant progress, and Guadalajara Pride is a testament to that progress. The event is a celebration of the community's achievements and a reminder that there is still work to be done to achieve full equality.

Event Details

Pride weekend Guadalajara typically starts with an extremely bright and colorful parade that winds its way through the downtown city streets. The parade is a very lively affair, with multi-colored floats and Mexican beats to get those hip swaying! The streets are lined with spectators, many of whom come out to show their support for the LGBTQ+ community.

And, hold on to your fabulous hats because the party doesn't stop after the parade! There's a whole lineup of events, from banging parties to jam-packed concerts and cultural events, all geared up to show off the rainbow-filled wonderland that is the LGBTQ+ community in Guadalajara. It's a chance for all of us to come together in a giant love-fest and embrace diversity like it's our job! So, put on your dancing shoes and let's get this show on the road!

Guadalajara Pride is a super fun, lively, and meaningful event that celebrates diversity, love, and acceptance. It's a reminder that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. So, make your way to Guadalajara during Pride Month and be sure to join in the magical festivities and buena onda (good vibes) for our LGBTQ+ community.
