CommUNITY Made Vallarta Pride 2015 a Huge Success

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - The value of "Unity" was the banner theme of Vallarta Pride 2015, held from May 17-25 in our destination. And it was precisely this unity that managed to create such a highly successful third edition of the most important annual gay pride festival in the region.

The Organizing Committee wishes to extend its deepest gratitude to all who participated so enthusiastically and to all of the event sponsors.

Undoubtedly, the most representative and emotional event of this festival was the Grand Vallarta Pride Parade, that saw the participation of more than 10 thousand people marching and enjoying the Party at the Park Lazaro Cardenas, which was headed by acclaimed DJ José Spinnin with performances by DJ Marko, Diamante Negro, Diva Divine, Las Gemelas de Vallarta, Juan Pablo Hernandez, Victoria Volkoba, Loyola, Luis Roberto Perez and, directly from Spain, La Prohibida.

Undoubtedly, all this effort would not have been possible without the participation and support of the Puerto Vallarta Conventions and Visitors Bureau (CVB), the Department of Transit, the cleaning crew and, of course, of all nationals and foreigners who supported the committee in organizing the event.


The Organizing Committee is pleased to announce the winners of the different categories of the Vallarta Pride 2015 Parade:

Best Float:
1st place - Casa Cupula
2nd place - Palmera Vacations
3rd place - Spartacus

Best Walking Group:
1st place - Reinas
2nd place - Paco's Ranch
3rd place - La Cueva

Best Car:
1st place - Flowers To Go
2nd place - Embassador of Pride
3rd place - Animando Dog Concierge

The Organizing Committee also extends its appreciation to Morganna Love, as well as to Andrew Christian and his models, Topher DiMaggio, Pablo Hernandez, Diego Sans and Cheddy for their presence - and for agreeing at the last minute to be the Official Marshals of Vallarta Pride 2015.

In this regard, Morganna Love, said: "I have been treated like a queen. I love Puerto Vallarta and I do not want to leave. Thank you for everything!"

Finally, the Vallarta Pride Organizing Committee wants to extend an invitation to all locals and visitors to visit Galería Omar Alonso, where the "Unity" art exhibition, proudly sponsored by MEXLend Mortgages, will remain on display until June 18, 2015.
