With the month of June in Barcelona come the first warm days, the longest nights, the start of summer, bonfires on the beach and LGBTQ+ Pride celebrations. The official day of celebration isn't until June 28, so we end up painting everything rainbow-coloured in anticipation the whole month. Every year more activities are organised to promote LGBTQ+ visibility and advocate for the community's rights throughout the month of June. This year looks to be a strange one in the history of Barcelona Pride, as we look for ways to celebrate without mass demonstrations, concerts, or the usual opening speeches to kick off the big parade in Plaça Universitat, followed by plenty of parties. But don't worry, the Barcelona LGBTQ+ scene is working on alternative ways to celebrate and commemorate, as much as possible, a month full of Pride.
