Last weekend saw the AFGAL volunteers head off to Gran Canaria to prepare the Gay Pride Sitges float for Maspalomas Pride.
Lady Diamond and Miss Ruby were accompanied by DJs and photographers to put on a show that would show the 50,000 participants in Gran Canaria Pride just what Sitges has to offer..
We met many familiar faces… visitors to Sitges, who will be coming for Pride and many new ones who will be first time visitors this year!
Thousands of Maps and Gay Pride Flyers were handed out all weekend in the Yumbo centre and during the 5 hour parade though the streets of Maspalomas..
The event was an ideal opportunity for Gay Pride Sitges to publicise their very own pride to an international audience.
As well as the hunderes of official photographs which you can see here, several thousand were taken by tourists, keen to get a shot of our ES boys, our special guests Lady and Ruby and of course their assistants.. Ivana and Hernan..
The weather topped 30 degrees..so it was hard work.. and we had a lot of willing volunteers to come on to the Sitges float.. indeed it was one of the most popular!
AFGAL would like to thank all of the people involved in putting together the float and promoting the event throughout Gran Canaria.
A big thanks too to Sitges Tourism.. without their sponsorship of the event, the trip would not have been possible.
The next Pride at which Sitges is participating in is Barcelona which takes place on Sat the 28th of June… If you would like to come along and be part of our float please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We are always looking for sexy Volunteers!
AFGAL are also seeking to take part in the Madrid Pride event.. to ensure we get the message out to as many people as possible about Sitges first every Pride. AFGAL are still seeking sponsors for the event. All donations gratefully accepted – email email@example.com to see how you or your business can help.
