Ibiza Gay Pride represents the incredible support that the island of Ibiza, as a whole, offers to the LGTBIQ+ collective. Our desire is to share a week of field activities, both protest and entertainment, whose objective is to achieve a positive impact in a society where there is still much to be achieved. Our mission, to promote equality, respect, gender diversity and above all love.
Acceptance of gay, bisexual, lesbian and intersex people is, unfortunately, a pending issue for the majority of the world's population. Although it is true that, especially in the European Community, policies and legislation in favor of the collective and social equality have recently been developed, there are still parts of the world where homosexuality is punishable by death. As examples mention Iran, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Mauritania, Sudan and parts of Nigeria and Somalia. We cannot forget that in a total of 71 countries they are still sentenced to prison terms, life imprisonment or sentences involving physical punishment. Despite the fact that the Spanish LGBTIQ+ culture has crossed borders, there is still an arduous task for the general population to normalize legally acquired rights internally. Ibiza prides itself on being a world benchmark for tolerance and diversity through activities that reinforce the visibility of the collective, where LGTBI-phobia and hatred have no place.
Our fundamental objectives are to show the rest of the world that Ibiza:
-Demands legal equality and social respect for affective-sexual diversity without discrimination.
-Promotes the dignity of the people that make up the group, the free development of their personality, where diversity is valued positively.
-Guarantees equal opportunities regardless of sexual orientation or gender identification.
-Report risk situations that may affect the group.
-Preserves and maintains the rights of the collective.
-Eradicates LGTBIQphobia and employment discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
-Educates about affective-sexual diversity in all areas of society.
-Facilitates the visibility of the group and develops its visibility.
-Support LGTBIQ+ Youth.
