Puerto Vallarta Pride and Giving Back

puerto vallarta pride 2015

SETAC Tu Centro Comunitario is proud to present the distinctive pin button Vallarta Gay Pride 2015, which will contribute to the continuation of the “La Casita” project.

This year Vallarta Pride is unique and special, not only because of the large amount of artistic and cultural activities that will take place from May 17 to 25, 2015, but also by supporting events where unity and social responsibility will be reflected for the common good.

Something like this deserves to be remembered. This is the reason why SETAC is proud to launch the official Vallarta Gay Pride 2015 pin button, a distinctive button displaying not only pride, but offering discounts and special surprises in each of the participating businesses during this festival playing tribute to the LGBT Community of Puerto Vallarta and beyond.

This commemorative button can be purchased at participating establishments for a $100 pesos donation. Proceeds will allow to continue with the project of “LA CASITA”, a temporary home focused on helping SETAC patients from neighboring communities such as as Talpa de Allende, Mascota, Tomatlán, Cabo Corrientes, Cihuatlán and La Huerta.

“LA CASITA” stems from the need for a decent, safe place for patients to continue their medical treatment or to receive attention before and after attending medical appointments at CAPASITS (Outpatient Center for AIDS Prevention and Care and STI) or the Regional Hospital. This space is intended to accommodate adults, teens and children.

SETAC Tu Centro Comunitario invites you to feel your pride by wearing this commemorative pin button and contribute to a noble cause for the benefit of those who require continuous medical care and/or special care.

For more information and to find the location of participating stores call the SETAC office on: 224 1974 or contact SETAC via Facebook. More information can also be found on Vallarta Pride or the official Facebook page.

Vallarta Pride

Puerto Vallarta Gay Pride May 22-26, 2014

“Orgullo Vallarta Pride” is a new annual event
celebrated  in May in Puerto Vallarta. It
was launched in 2013 to celebrate the diverse LGBT community that both lives in
and visits Puerto Vallarta, and that over the years has positively influenced
and formed part of its culture, heritage and history.

The LGBT event “Vallarta Pride” will take place this year on
the weekend of May 22 to 26, 2014. Previously it was a 2-day celebration and
will now be expanding into a week-long cultural celebration. Celebrate Puerto
Vallarta and its international population with
music festivals, beach parties, fashion shows, parade, and activities in
participating bars and clubs. Puerto Vallarta is the number one Mexican travel
destination for LGBT tourists.

Puerto Vallarta offers an LGBT inclusive atmosphere in the
Romantic Zone area, in the heart of downtown, which is home to many businesses
that are LGBT-owned and/or target the consumer, including beaches, tours,
activities and restaurants bars and clubs to choose from. LGBT travelers have
the option of choosing from gay friendly resorts, hotels, lodges, bed and
breakfasts and guest houses. One of my favorites is Hotel Mercurio. Nuevo
Vallarta is 20-30 minutes further north and that is where you find the sterile big
chain resorts and this is where the cruise ships dock. I highly suggest you
stay in Romantic Zone to get the true feeling of Mexico and skip the big chain
resorts.

In the Fall of 2013 the state of Jalisco, where Puerto
Vallarta is located, approved a civil union law that allows couples co-habiting
to register their union with the state and allowing for certain rights,
including that of inheritance, property ownership, and medical rights among
others. Puerto Vallarta provides a perfect backdrop for a wedding and a
honeymoon all in one. During the week of pride events there will be a mass
commitment ceremony.

Updates will be posted on their facebook page as the
schedule is announced.

Gay Pride in Puerto Vallarta May 24-26

 

Gay Pride in Puerto Vallarta!

Puerto Vallarta’s annual LGBT event “Vallarta Pride” will take place this year on the weekend of May 24th,
2013.
Events will start with a cocktail kick-off at Puerto Vallarta’s
Casa Cupula Hotel Boutique and continue for three days, celebrating LGBT
culture and Puerto Vallarta’s welcoming community with music festivals,
beach parties, fashion shows, mass commitment ceremony and activities
in participating bars and clubs.

A member of the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association,
Puerto Vallarta has been a preferred LGBT friendly destination in the
Americas for over 60 years.

Puerto Vallarta offers an LGBT inclusive atmosphere in is Romantic Zone
area
which is home to many businesses that are LGBT-owned and/or target
the consumer, including beaches, tours, activities and restaurants bars
and clubs to choose from. LGBT travelers have the option of choosing
from gay friendly resorts, hotels, lodges, bed and breakfasts and guest
houses. (Many first time  travelers make the mistake and stay out in Nuevo Vallarta. While there are many great places to stay out there, the LGBT community is in Romantic Zone – Old Vallarta).

The City’s Tourism Department at City Hall, led by Director Carlos
Gerard and Sub-Director Enrique Tovar, aims to increase tourism to the
city.

The 3-day event was created to celebrate the unique and
all-inclusive culture that has flourished in Puerto Vallarta,
successfully integrating the rich traditions of the Mexican culture with
the varied ideas that have been introduced to the local community from
its large expatriate community from all corners of the world including
the US and Canada, and as far afield as Asia, Russia and Europe. The
LGBT community is just one of the many communities that thrives in
Vallarta organizers explained.
