2009 Orgullo Madrid Gay Pride Parade

Last year, Madrid hosted Europe's Orgullo Gay festival.

This year is a more typical year with the somewhat smaller-scale Gran Vía parade and Chueca-wide street parties from 25 June to 5 July 2009. While last year's attendance was HUGE, inviting supporters and partiers throughout Europe, the novice won't see much difference this year because Madrid's Gay Pride Festival is big.
