Two up coming events on the island, the first being the Cruise Ship Monarch is on the Island on Wednesday from 9am to 5pm.
This European gay cruise Produced by La Demence on board of Monarch offers you a unique itinerary from Lisbon to Madeira and the Canary Islands. Offering a perfect mix of culture, relaxation and outstanding open air summer parties, this is your best holiday option. The Cruise, is the best gay holiday experience ever.
The second event is a first for Madeira, as Funchal will be hosting its first Gay Pride on October 7th.
Funchal Pride is a celebration and revivification event of LGBTI+ human rights. The event is run by the “rede ex aequo” association and others that are helping too. “Mad Le’s Femme”, “Associação Abraço”, “Associação para o Planeamento da Família” and “Fundação Portuguesa “A Comunidade Contra a Sida”” are the co-organizors of the event. It’s Madeira’s first Pride ever! And it’s on the 7th October already! It starts at 3pm with the 1st LGBT+ Pride Walk in Praça do Município, stopping in Jardim Municipal do Funchal. At 4pm there is Arraial Pride in Jardim Municipal do Funchal! Because we want to “viver na diversidade” (live in diversity)
Pride is for everyone, no matter your sexual preference, so lets all get together and have a fun day, with music and laughter, an make the first Funchal Gay Pride one to remember.
I will post more on this as information is sent to me.
I also own Madeira’s only Gay Website, where I will put information also.
