Like all good things, Pride has come to an end.
And it came to a fitting end at L’Atlantida..
The club has never seen so many people dressed-up for a party before! Gaggles of drag queens (we think that is the term) mingled with circuit boys, tourists, locals, journalists, vips.. you name it.
The weather was perfect as the Mediterranean Breeze washed away the sultry heat from one of the hottest July’s we’ve seen in Sitges for a long time. It must have been all the hot bodies in Sitges last weekend.
And yes, of course there will be a Gay Pride Sitges 2011! AFGAL are working on the dates and they will be announced on the official Gay Pride Sitges Site soon.
We would like to thank all of you for your kind comments and emails over the past few days.
We would also like to thank the people of Sitges for embracing Pride and taking it to their hearts. It really was an entire Village occasion.
To all of those who dressed-up, you put some sparkle on the streets, that’s for sure.
To all of our advertisers, we hope that you received your fair share of visitors from the event and that your parties were a success.
To the volunteers and from Sitges and Barcelona, it would have been impossible without you.
To our own team of photographers including Joan, Javier, Maria, Michael and Kate, thank you.. we are still batching as of today!!
To Lady Diamond for taking charge of our float, picking some of the most delightful boys and dancing her way through Sitges during the parade in 34 degree heat, thank you!
To Gary for styling and being the best VIP anyone could ask for. To Ruby for her PR Skills, amongst many others, to the lovely Americans, Ernesto and Michael, for carrying, lifting, running and well just being there, thank you!
To all of the board of AFGAL for your time and patience during the 3 days as well as the many meetings beforehand, thank you.
To Doug at Hotel Parrots for all of the work, effort and patience in designing flyers, coping with guests and just keeping us sane!
To all of those who dressed up for the Parades in Maspalomas and Barcelona, including the staff at XXL and Victor, Ivan and Hernan from Parrots, thank you.
To Luis Enriquez for all his hard work and to his partner, Sebastian for his patience and French sense of humour and to Hector and Ian for their continued dedication, thank you!
To our sponsors San Miguel, without whom it would have been impossible to hold such an event. To Sitges Tourism for their resources and assistance. To the Council for their support and guidance, to the Police, Fire Service and Red Cross, your assistance and support was superb.
To the people at Gaydar for their marketing support and continued encouragement and assistance, thank you.
And finally, to our video production crew, Hector and his Team as well as to our new friends and videographer extraordinaire, Gabbi and her gang of colourful drag queens, thank you! We hope we haven’t left anyone out, there were so many involved.
