San Sebastián LGTBI, always ahead of its time

Donosti Feeling

The LGTBI issue has become a thermometer of a city's development and modernity, and now no one wants to be left behind. Many cities call on an institutional effort to make them tourism-friendly for the LGTBI community. In the case of San Sebastián, however, the LGTBI diversity and inclusion experience was no coincidence, nor was it sought out, but it is the natural evolutive consequence of a cosmopolitan, multicultural, open, welcoming city that has been tangible for decades.
