Puerto Vallarta is gearing up for Vallarta Pride, the city’s annual celebration of the LGBT community. The event has drawn such large crowds in the past that this year’s party has been extended, running from May 17 to May 25.
Main events such as the colorful Pride Parade on May 23 are free, and other entertainment options include cultural performances, concerts, film screenings and beach parties. Comedian, musician and actress Lea DeLaria, a fan favorite on the hit series “Orange Is the New Black,” has been named grand marshal of the soiree. On May 22, California designer Andrew Christian will be among participants in an international fashion show.
More details about this and other Vallarta Pride events will be posted online as they become available.
