ARN Culture & Business Pride will see Playa de las Américas turned into a real party venue for a while next month. Every night from Tuesday 18th to Sunday 23rd June there will a wide range of entertainments, parties, concerts, art and fashion events and much more, all orientated to the LGTBIQ community. This is the third time the event has been held here, and organizers stress that this is not devoted to the gay community but they hope all the public will take part and enjoy the itinerary, and increase interest and understanding in the process. Arona Ayuntamiento says that after last year’s success, the event is now instantly among  the top ten such events internationally.

This year, there’ll be some keeping up to do since the former Olympic athlete Caitlyn Jenner will be attending! In a first visit to Spain, Jenner will be presented with the Alan Turing LGTBIQ award for commitment to the visibility of the trans collective. The festival itself will maintain the same format as the first two editions which have made it a benchmark of international and accessible gatherings of the most diverse perspectives. There is full information about the festival on the dedicated website HERE and there is a Facebook page for the event HERE.
