LGBT Pride Parade

Join the city's annual celebration of diversity. November 10.


November 10, 2018


Starting in Plaza de Mayo and finishing in the Plaza del Congreso.

The LGBT Pride parade takes place in Buenos Aires every November, with music, dance and a lot colour.

The first march in 1992, led by Carlos Jáuregui, attracted 300 people, many wearing masks to conceal their identity. More than twenty five years later, Buenos Aires has become the LGBT destination of choice in Latin America and the annual Orgullo (pride) parade attracts more than 100,000 people from all over the world.

The event starts in front of Argentina's "pink house", the Casa Rosada governmental palace in Plaza de Mayo, with live music and a diversity fair before the parade heads to the National Congress building.

The city's open-mindedness and cosmopolitan culture, together with Argentina's pioneering equal marriage and gender identity laws have established Buenos Aires as the top destination for LGBT tourism in Latin America, and November is a great month to visit with the Asterisco film festival and the Queer Tango Festival also taking place in the city.
