Gay Sitges Carnival Feb 16-22

More than 200,000 people will visit Sitges, Spain during the Carnival
festivities with all of the gay bars open in town, two huge parades on
the Saturday and Tuesday and more glitter than you have ever seen! Feb. 16-22.

There are still great locations and great deals!

Carnival has to be Sitges’ wildest party. Even though it is on in
February it is still the hottest party in town! On the most popular days
you will find  partygoers dancing on the major streets
across the town.

The busy months of July and August look positively
dead! Gay boys and girls from the 4 corners of the world descend on our
little town and party the week away!

Jueves Lardero or Fat Tuesday,marks the beginning of carnival with a
huge celebration of local dishes and the arrival of the King of the
Carnestoltes and ends with the Burial of a Sardine on Ash Wednesday.
There’s more to do than eat, though.

Sitges Carnival is a full 7 days of parties and events. The King arrives on Thursday
the 16th of February, however the gay parties kick off the week before from Saturday the 11th.

Each of the gay bars and clubs has their own theme and their own special night so there is always something to do. And remember its all about your costume so make sure you bring something sparkly.

Barcelona to Erect LGBT Monument – Possibly near Gaudi’s Famous Sagrada Familia

This will certainly
piss the Pope off!

“In memory of gays, lesbians and transsexuals who have suffered persecution and repression throughout history. Barcelona 2011”

that’s the inscription on the granite pink triangle the local authority announced  today it would possibly place right opposite the basilica of the Sagrada Familia. 

The Sagrada Familia, Antoni Gaudí’s unfinished masterpiece, is one of Barcelona’s most popular tourist attractions. Construction on this church will continue at least until 2041, but it has already become Barcelona’s most important landmark.

The announcement – in a statement – came just weeks after the Pope consecrated the building, and faced a mass kiss-in on his route through the city.

The park opposite is currently being re-modelled, and Barcelona’s city council said it’s a perfect central location for a monument to the LGBT community, which will no doubt become a place of pilgrimage in the way that a similar site in Amsterdam has.

Not everyone was thrilled. The leader of the opposition Partido Popular in Barcelona described the decision to put the monument opposite such a potent symbol of the Catholic Church as “pure provocation” and demanded the decision be reversed.  Those in favour – who include transsexual activist and actress Carla Antonelli – can’t understand their opposition, and ask whether the PP is arguing that the persecution and assassination of gays is somehow “less detestable than any other crime”, or worse, that it’s something the party approves of.

As of  this afternoon, council sources have indicated that the site opposite the basilica has now been ruled out, and that the city’s Sculpture Commission will soon make the final decision as to where the LGTB monument should go. We’ll keep you posted.
