Second edition “Visible Him, Her, Them”

Nuestro Orgullo is a Festival created by SETAC that makes visible and celebrates the diversity within the LGBTIQ+ community is a celebration conceived by and for the community. They create platforms and forums to proudly show part of what we are and what represents us.

Artists, activists, influencers, professionals, social actors, public figures and authorities, all gathered to show and share with everyone their great work and the pride of being diverse.

The second edition will take place on the sidelines of the “Gay Pride” celebration in Puerto Vallarta, on May 20, 21, 22, 23 and 26, 2022.

The Festival is made up of a circuit of activities that will take place over 4 days and 1 additional day for a fundraising gala. The proposal consists of a Diverse Program designed by the LGBTIQ+ community, but of great interest to the general public that promotes diversity, values, culture, art, health, community and family. Here we are all welcome.

Some of the confirmed guests will be the mexican drag king Paper Cut, the sex educator and DJ Alicia Delicia, the multidisciplinary and make up artist Negra Conda and the clinical psychologist specializing in HIV Psychologist Miguel Subero.

To find out about all the activities, workshops and parties, consult Nuestro Orgullo Festival’s QR code and don’t be left out!


Women, unfortunately, have been underrepresented at Vallarta’s pride events. In 2014 Pink and Proud started LGBTQ Women’s events during Pride but didn’t get much support from the rest of the community. With more LGBTQ women travelling to Puerto Vallarta as a destination organizers hope to create safe and fun spaces for women to celebrate pride in one of the most gay friendly cities in Mexico.
