Nine days of celebrations are to be held between the 10th and the 18th of December, as Buenos Aires will be hosting the first New Gay Pride Fest BA.
There will be big parties but also cultural activities and educational talks, which will address topics ranging from HIV and discrimination, to equal marriage and adoption.
The organizer, Gianni Beck, has been working on this project for the past two years. The aim of the festival is to celebrate the worldwide achievements of the LGBT community and promote an “inclusive” mood. ”This story of ‘fighting’ for everything that is gay has ended, there is egalitarian marriage, the gender law will be passed… So what’s missing is that society joins together as a whole. It’s about inclusion,” he said. “This is a much happier campaign. So our idea is to show those who haven’t realised it yet that we are all equal.”
The two most important parties will be on the 15th and 17th of December. Fresh Power Pool Party, a pool party with a host of international DJs, will start in the afternoon and finish in the early hours of the evening. Dutch DJ Dash Berlin, Spanish DJ Iván Pica and the Argentine duet Heartbeat, amongst others, will be present at the Gay Power Party, to be held in the Malvinas Argentinas Stadium.
It is expected that 5000 people will attend the main parties.
