The candidates are selected based not only on the physical qualities of the candidates, but also on other qualities such as elegance, professionalism, and the way they express themselves.

3. Pride Parties

Chueca itself is a neighbourhood famous for nightlife. With a huge concentration of bars and clubs in the neighbourhood and the lively LGBTQIA+ residing there, it’s the go-to place! But during Madrid Orgullo the whole city turns into one big party! Officially, Madrid Pride will be hosting some official events, but clubs and bars all across town will be supporting the LGBTQIA+ community with a whole-lotta partying!!

4. High Heel Race

If you’re not into the party side of Pride you can participate in the famous (and harder than you think) high heel race! As it enters its 25th year, the race has become a staple in Pride celebrations in Madrid. Contestants are challenged to run 3 qualification rounds 15cm through Calle Pelayo in heels! Make sure you get there early to get a good spot! Keep an eye on the official Madrid Orgullo page for more information on spectating and participating in the race.

5. Cultural Pride

Dates Pending
The culture festival of Madrid Pride is when art meets the streets! From powerful theatrical performances and social art shows to their cultural movements aimed at encouraging activism and attention toward the LGBTIA+ community! Shows like La Culta and MUESTRA•T are just a few of the movements scheduled for the festival!
