WORLD PRIDE 2017 – INTERNATIONAL PARTICIPATION
On Saturday July 1st 2017 will take place the largest World LGTB Pride Parade. It will be commemorated the 40th anniversary of Spain ?s first Pride Parade in 1977, which marked the beginning of the gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual rights movement in our country.
Spain has always been a melting pot of different cultures and civilizations, a bridge between Latin America and Europe, the Mediterranean and Europe. Madrid, the capital of Spain is a true example of a multicultural city. ASDE Scouts de España has been always committed with the defence of the values of equality, respect, tolerance, freedom and equal rights, providing our scouts groups campaigns and activities to promote these values a raise-awareness amongst our young people and adults. For this reason, we believe that the celebration of this event is a unique opportunity to build these bridges and spread these values.
