Puerto Rico Gay Pride 2021
Puerto Rico Gay Pride takes place in the Island’s capital San Juan each year at the beginning of June. The event culminates in a colorful pride parade on the final Sunday of the festival.
The bars along Avenida Condado in San Juan’s gay district hosts host parties and events throughout the week leading up to the Pride March.
The city’s Santurce neighborhood is booming with restaurants and nightlife. Much of the Pride action is centered around La Placita where you can check out nightlife at the little bars that spill onto the plaza. Friday nights are especially busy, with gay tipplers congregating at El Patio de Lila.
Toxic Night club and Santos Rooftop parties are highly recommended.
The main parade kicks off at Condado’s Parque del Indio, launching floats, bands, activists, and queens down Ashford Avenue. Find a spot along the route to see rainbow-colored floats, people on stilts and roller skates, go-go dancers, drag personalities, and more.
Other events take place at Escambrón beachside park,where you’ll find an expansive green lawn surrounded by vendors and a massive stage for entertainment.
The parade ends at Parque del Tercer Milenio, complate with a big Pride stage rally and performances, organized by Colectivo Orgullo Arcoiris (the Rainbow Pride Collective).
