Valencia, LGBTIQ+ friendly

Surely you know Somewhere over the rainbow, that song that tells of a magical place on the other side of the rainbow where the sky is blue and the dreams you dare to dream come true. Well, you're in luck!
You've come to an open city, one that is full of vivid, sun-drenched hues, and a zest for life. If you already know it, you have doubtless experienced this. If it's your first time, give yourself the pleasure of diving in headfirst, and make the city your own. It is a tolerant place that embraces the colours of diversity like few others.
In Valencia the red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple flag flies proudly. Valencia is the city that understands. Will you join us?
