Pride Puerto Rico

North America, Puerto Rico

Puerto Ricans pride themselves on being the LGBTQIA capital of the Caribbean. With at least 4 pride events taking place every year in June (in the capital city San Juan, in Cabo Rojo, in Ponce and in Vieques), this archipelago located 1,000 miles southeast of Miami, Florida, is indeed a very friendly place to celebrate Pride !

The first Puerto Rican pride took place in San Juan in 1990 when a group of men and women bravely marched down Ashford Avenue, in front of hundreds of people. This first march was a celebration to honor those who had died during the Aids epidemic in the 80s, but also to express outrage against police persecution and regulations meant to silence the community.
