Gay Barcelona 2018

Gay BarcelonaJuly 16th. 2018

Barcelona is home to some of the world’s biggest gay circuit parties and many other huge parties throughout the year. They really know how to party in Barcelona, catering to all tastes, with mega parties from names like Matinee, Churros con Chocolate,  Pop Air, Tanga, Ka etc.

Barcelona’s gay scene is in an area called L’Eixample or nick named Gaixample and is north-west of the center of town within walking distance, but can also be reached by metro from either the Universitat or Urgell stations. If you get off at Urgell take the Villarroel exit. The scene is lively and there’s plenty of variety. Everything you’d expect from a major city’s gay scene but with the added bonus of bronzed Spanish lads all over the place.

To top it all off, you have the town of Sitges, a gay mecca for many years, just down the road which you must check out as well. It’s an easy 35 minute train ride away from Sants train station, or better yet, from Passeig de Gracia station near the gay village.

Barcelona Gay News & Events in 2018

Over 380,000 people attended Pride Barcelona this year. It is the biggest Pride on the Med’, the second biggest in Spain, after Madrid and becoming a major player in Europe. Congrats to Eloi Morte, Director of Pride Barcelona, and his team for making it such a great Barcelona event and for working with Madrid, instead of against, which is the BCN/MAD norm. Separatism is out, togetherness is in! We’re dead chuffed with ya, Barcelona. 🙂
