Route of the Pride march in Medellín

For this year, a participation of about 90,000 people is expected.

After a voting process through social networks that began on April 20, it was learned that the route of the Pride march in Medellín on July 2 will begin on Las Vegas Avenue, between the Inem and the Poli , and will end in the Parque de las Luces.

According to the Alianza Social Lgbti Antioquia, more than 2,000 votes were received for this option. The other alternative was between Barbacoas Street and Oriental Avenue and ended in the same way in the Parque de las Luces.

The appointment to march for diversity, pride and the rights of the Lgbti population will start at 10:00 in the morning and will advance through Calle 30, Carabobo and San Juan. In total there will be 4.3 kilometers of travel.

"Pride Medellín 2023 has a trans commitment, we ask for a comprehensive law that guarantees the rights of this population, the commitment includes the colors and visibility of trans people and organizations," said Sebastián Arenas, co-director of Pride Medellín.

It will also be a bet for life. Last year Medellín faced a growth of more than 200% in the numbers of murders of the population, compared to 2021.

The motto will be "#TodxsPorLaVida We want each other alive, life first!", as a commitment to prioritizing our well-being and quality of life above all else, and a rejection of homicides and hate crimes against the population.

In the 2022 edition, more than 85,000 people marched through the streets of Medellín, a journey that began in the Alpujarra sector and ended at the Obelisk, where a varied cultural program was enjoyed.

On the other hand, the Diverse Volunteering is the human team that makes this march possible and currently has open registrations for people to participate. “We are looking for people who want to be part of Pride Medellín as volunteers, we want to have a force of about 350 volunteers to carry out the march,” Arenas said.

The registration process can be done through the following link: The meetings are on Sundays, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Casa de la Memoria Museum.
