Launching Winter Pride Maspalomas 2014, The time is Right

Press Release for Immediate Release

Gran Canaria (09-24-2014) -- After thirteen successful years of Maspalomas Pride, founding team members are building on the overwhelming success of this now famous brand by launching the first ever edition of Maspalomas Winter Pride 2014.

Organized by ProGay with the support of GLAY (Gay and Lesbian Association of Yumbo) and local authorities, this inaugural edition of Maspalomas Winter Pride will take place over three days from the 13-15 November 2014 in the iconic Yumbo Centre offering a range of internationally-known artists, events and entertainment especially designed to appeal to the demographic of the island's gay winter visitors.

Gran Canaria, known as Europe´s largest and number one gay destination is the only setting in Europe to offer the perfect climate for an outdoor Winter Pride event and the organizers believe the event will attract increased numbers of visitors to the island and will become a must-visit addition to the worldwide Pride calendar.

Once the event is established, organizers will replicate the business model of the May edition of Maspalomas Pride by moving Winter Pride to the start of December, which, like May had once been, is a period of low tourist occupation.

By celebrating this winter edition during a period when tourism figures dip dramatically this innovation will deliver a very significant boost to visitor figures and will generating tens of millions extra revenue for not only Yumbo, but for the tourist industry as a whole such as extra flights, hotels accommodation, restaurants, bars, shops and taxis etc. Amongst the confirmed live acts are: Baccara, Alcazar and Redd.

A ProGay spokesman said, “Standing still is like moving backwards, it's important to always try to improve, innovate and to offer the best quality possible. We believe the time right for Maspalomas Pride, Winter Edition.”
