Recognized internationally as a LGBTTIQ mecca, Puerto Vallarta is ready to receive domestic and international gay visitors, creating a sophisticated culture, sheltered by a vibrant local community that is constantly evolving. This heritage was adopted by the Vallarta PRIDE Organizing Committee in order to work together with public and private partners, putting our city on the world stage of the yearly LGBTTIQ celebrations.
Vallarta PRIDE works towards a future without discrimination so that we all have equal rights before the law. We believe we can achieve this through the LGBTTIQ events we organize to inspire, to commemorate and celebrate our community.
