Pride in Pictures 2002: Pride goes global

Spain’s repressive Franco regime may have delayed LGBT celebrations there, but the nation’s Prides have rebounded nicely.

Quite impressively, actually, with 2017 attendance estimated at least 3.5 million at Madrid’s 2017 WorldPride festival.

In comparison, New York City Pride estimates topped 1.2 million in 2015 and 2016. San Francisco? 1.7 million in 2014.

But they don’t come lose to the estimated 5 million people at São Paulo Pride in 2017.

What started as Christopher Street Day celebrations in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco have grown exponentially worldwide. An international group of Pride producers, InterPride, now designates certain celebrations as WorldPride. In 2017, Madrid Pride was such an event.

Mark your calendar for the next one — 2019, in New York.
