Casares is preparing to celebrate Pride Day on Friday June 7 in the Jardines del Rosario.

The event, which champions diversity, will include the presentation of the Casares Diverso Award and a gala with a performance by Jota Carajota, a renowned Spanish drag queen.

The municipality, which has recently been awarded the European Capitals of Inclusion and Diversity prize in the bronze category for cities with less than 50,000 inhabitants, reaffirms its commitment to creating a fairer and more diverse society. This recognition adds to the various measures that Casares has implemented to promote inclusion and diversity.

For the past four years, Casares has been celebrating Pride Day with a festival that highlights the importance of the LGTBI movement. This year, the Casares Diverso Award will once again be presented, which recognises the work of people in the municipality who have stood out for their work in promoting a fairer and more diverse society.

The event, which this year has moved to Casares Costa, will continue in the auditorium of Los Jardines del Rosario with music by DJ Mister Gody and a drinks bar, offering attendees a celebration full of colour and diversity.
