Egalitarian traffic lights and a great rainbow on Europa Avenue to celebrate Benidorm Pride

Semáforos igualitarios y un gran arcoiris en la avenida de Europa para celebrar el Orgullo de Benidorm

Abaco LGBT + launches its cultural programming and proposes #BenidormSinArmarios in social networks

The Department of Mobility joins Benidorm Pride with the installation of pedestrian traffic lights for the first time on public roads. Specifically in the lower part of Ruzafa street and at the intersection of Mediterráneo Avenue and Hispanidad Square. This initiative responds to the need to convert "urban space into an area of ​​coexistence and equality," said the councilman responsible for the area, José Ramón González de Zárate.

The change of the lenses in the traffic lights is done coinciding with Benidorm Pride and they show different pictograms to the habitual ones. González de Zárate has also announced that the public road will be painted with the colors of the rainbow flag at the beginning of the pedestrian zone in the confluence of Europa and Madrid Avenues. "The Pride," he said, "will gather thousands of people in Benidorm. Especially here on the day of the Parade. It is our way of welcoming and welcoming all those involved in the Pride. "

Exhibition in the Espai d'Art

From Monday, September 4, and until day 9, you will also be able to see in the Espai d'Art of the lobby of Benidorm City Hall the collective exhibition 'The world is not pink' by Triangle Foundation and that in Benidorm is sponsored by the local association Abbaco LGBT +. The show has been made by artists: Carlos Alberto de la Concepción, Nano Barrena, Marta Salvador, Celia Muñoz and Francisco Martín. The works show clear violations of human rights in the world today for the LGBT population and with which "it is intended to convey an idea, that the world is never pink colour," said the president of Abbot LGBT +, Lorenzo Medina.

The association has also launched the 'hashtag' #BenidormSinArmarios and its versions in Valencian and English: #BenidormSenseArmaris and #BenidormWithoutClosets. "We want to demonstrate," stressed Medina, "that we are a people without closets, that we are proud to be gay, lesbian, transsexual, bisexual or intersexual" and to achieve this, it is proposed that during the Pride Week social networks are filled with all kinds of audiovisual material in which its protagonists demonstrate what they are unobtrusively. "That anyone can send a photo with his partner, with his family, dressing as he/she likes but that promotes respect for diversity," he concluded.
