Among the largest metro regions in Europe, Lisbon is the capital city of Portugal, which has steadily developed a reputation as a center of gay-friendliness and tolerance - in 2010, Portugal legalized gay marriage. In late June, GLBT persons from throughout Portugal come to the capital for Lisbon Gay Pride, officially called Arraial Pride. The date this year is Saturday, June 29, 2013, from 5 pm onward, at Jardim do Principe Real.
Additionally, gay-popular bars, restaurants, hotels, and shops in the area have more going on than usual during Pride week. Check online resources about the Budapest gay scene, such as the Lisbon Gay Guide at Patroc.com, the Gay Lisbon Guide at GayIberia.com and the Go Lisbon Gay Guide. Also take a look at the excellent visitor site produced by the country's official tourism organization, the Turismo de Portugal.
