This June, hundreds of thousands of people from around the world will gather in Madrid, Spain to celebrate the spirit of the international LGBTQ community during the World Pride 2017 event.
But this isn’t just any Pride event. World Pride breaks down more than just barriers of sex, gender and sexual orientation. It brings people together from varying cultural, religious, political, ethnic and racial groups, celebrating the myriad differences found within the LGBTQ community, while reveling in the things that bring us together. It’s an event not to be missed.

Here are a few reasons you should attend World Pride:
1. You’ll Learn Something New
Whether it’s Flamenco dancing at a local Tablaos or talking with a new friend, World Pride is full of opportunities to learn something new. Part of what makes the LGBTQ community remarkably unique is our ability to learn, adapt, challenge and teach. Staying open to new ideas is the lifeblood of any thriving community. Traveling to and experiencing an event like World Pride is an excellent way to keep fresh ideas flowing.
2. You’ll Experience Something Spectacular
Fear of the unknown holds many people back. Dare to break free and open yourself up to new experiences. Immersing yourself in a culture not your own gives you unprecedented perspective. From the food to the fashion to the customs — experiencing how people around the world live day-to-day encourages you to think differently. It may even inspire you to make a few changes of your own.
3. You’ll Taste Something Unique
One of the best reasons to travel is the food. And World Pride is no exception. As the globe gathers to celebrate individuality, you can bet the flavors will follow. Whether it’s your favorite food in the world or something you thought you’d never try, delectable dishes will never be far from reach. And with so many culinary adventures at your fingertips, why not try something new?
4. You’ll Hear Something Sensational
The strum of a guitar. The clack of a castanet. The hum of city traffic. The lilt of a foreign language. Experiencing World Pride will open you up to a host of new and rich sounds. Music from around the world can be found in local restaurants and nightclubs — from the sweet notes of local musicians to the throbbing base of skilled DJs. And as with any global event, the languages will be as varied as the music. If you needed an excuse to brush up on your communication skills, there’s no better time.
5. You’ll See Something Amazing
There’s a reason Madrid is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the world. Museums, history, art, architecture — there’s always something new to see. But during World Pride, you’ll see something even more amazing. You’ll see people from every corner of the world coming together for a common purpose — to celebrate diversity, to rejoice in our difference and to unite in our love for each other. That’s something you won’t see every day.
6. You’ll Share Something Special
An event like World Pride can’t exist without people like you; people ready and willing to participate and share their unique personalities, stories and experiences. You’ll not only have the chance to experience everything the event has to offer, but you’ll be able to impart something special of your own. We’re all different, and sharing what makes you unique gives World Pride the necessary ingredients to be successful.
7. You’ll Remember Something Forever
The experiences you’ll have during World Pride are the kind that will stick with you for a lifetime. You’ll hear amazing music, taste fabulous foods, and make friends you never knew you needed. Creating memories is more valuable than any souvenir or Instagram photo, and World Pride is the perfect place to make them.
