The first manifestation of gay pride in Galicia was held in Vigo on June 29, 1981, convened by the incipient galician coordination of gay’s collectives (CCGG) in which some 500 people participated. The spark would have ignited just the previous year, in a feminist party to celebrate pride, in which brochures were distributed and in which a banner was carried claiming the lesbian sexuality of women: “Sexuality is not heterosexuality. Let’s defend our lesbianism with pride.” Thirty-eight years later the LGBT pride is celebrated, in addition to the big cities, in small towns such as Xinzo or Forcarei, with 3500 inhabitants.
