Puerto Vallarta Pride, the annual festival which takes place this year from May 22 to 29, has become an integral part of the port’s culture, heritage and history since its inception in 2013.
This year, a correlated festival is specifically aimed at women from the lesbian, bisexual, trans and queer population.
Taking place during the same dates, organizers expect Lesbian Pride 2023 to attract women of multiple nationalities to the resort. Among the planned activities are a drag show, beach party, adventure tour, boat excursion, taco tasting, horseback river ride, shopping tour and dinner show (see eventbrite.com/e/puerto-vallarta-lesbian-pride). Vivian Trian, founder of Ladies Touch Travel Agency and the event’s promoter, says she hopes the festival will become an annual happening. Puerto Vallarta is considered the leading beach destination in Latin America for the LGBTTTQI community and the second internationally after Tel Aviv, Israel.
