Gay Travel: First Gay Pride in the Azores a Success
More then 2000 people participated in the first-ever Pride March and Festival Pride Azores on September 1, 2012 " A tremendous success," says Terry Costa, the president of the only LGBT organization on the Atlantic islands.

The festival happened between August 28th and September 2 and featured a conference on the LGBT issues. Attendees included NYC Pride executive Chris Frederick, Portugal's oldest activist Antonio Serzedelo, and Azores activist on equality Judite Fernandes. Highlights of the festival were short film screenings, gay poetry readings, and a party showcasing performers after the March.

The events happened at te Public Library and an artsy bar galery called Arco 8. The main event was the March and Festival at Portas do Mar, a fairly new area of Azores largest city of Ponta Delgada that is used to dock some of the worlds major cruise ships that pass by the picturesque island of Sao Miguel.
