    You can register here.

  • How much does it cost?

    There is a fee to attend, starting at 20€ and rising the closer we get to the conference date.

    Where should I stay?

    That’s up to you, but the closer you are to a Cercanías station, the easier your trip to the conference will be. The stops Atocha, Sol, Nuevos Ministerios, and Chamartín are all on the same line. The stop Recoletos, which is close to Chueca, requires one change but is also quite convenient.


It’s the first time that these two major events are celebrated at the same time in one city. It’s an honour and a privilege for Madrid to take over Amsterdam´s (EuroPride 2016) and Toronto´s (WorldPride 2014) legacy in celebrating and standing up for the right to freedom of sexual orientation of the people.

AIt´s necessary to add to those two events the twentieth anniversary of the first manifestation in Madrid, in which the politician revindication was joined by a festive nature, turning it in the current well known parade, which helped Madrid become a reference of the celebration of the LGBTQI Pride worldwide. A truly special anniversary..

Most of the events and activities that will be celebrated during WorldPride week, will take place at the WorldPride Park. This area, located at Puente del Rey (King’s Bridge), will have space for family, leisure and learning. Visitors can enjoy all kinds of activities and events, from cultural spaces to food trucks passing through a commercial area.


The conference will take place on June 26, 27, 28th at one of Madrid's universities of reference; Universidad Autonoma, specifically, at its three most important faculties: the Faculty of Economics and Business Studies, the Faculty of Philosophy and the Politecnica building. The registration points for the all Conference assistant will be established in the two later ones. From the SUMMIT team we urge you to come at least 30 minutes before the start of any session.
