Bilbao has hosted the Bilbao Bizkaia Harro since 2015, a “city and territory” event to celebrate the sexual-affective diversity and solidarity of the citizenship in favor of the rights of LGBTI people around the world. Bilbao Bizkaia Harro wants to turn Bilbao and Bizkaia into an international benchmark mainly on the Atlantic axis.
Bilbao Bizkaia Harro includes diverse social, artistic, cultural, sports and awareness activities aimed at celebrating the diversity of the city and the territory, claiming equal rights and the open character of our society in an attractive and supportive manner. Part of the collaboration between different entities, institutions, volunteers, media, private companies, associations and organizations gathered around this project.
After 5 years, we reinvent ourselves. We want 2019 to be the year with the greatest number of activities. Where all of them have a clear function: to form and sensitize. In the same way, we want the Basque language and Basque culture to be characteristic elements of our event.
We also opt for building a Proud Bizkaia and this happens because its municipalities join. Therefore, we work so that different municipalities join Bizkaia Harro with some activity (s). We want to encourage each municipality to have its own programming by offering different activities (theater, film, entertainment activities …), while urging the Ur Parade become the iconic event where we show the commitment of the whole Bizkaia.
