• Three day festival cancelled
  • Sunday June 30 Gay Pride march still on

The three day Gay Pride Festival in San José, was cancelled for the lack of funds.

Organizers say the lack of a main sponsor and disinterest from the municipality led to the suspension of the festival that was to take place June 28-30.

Javier Umaña, one of the organizers, said the activity of sexual minorities is not a priority for the municipality, unlike events like the Festival de Luz and other parades.

Umaña added that despite the no-go for the festival, the march on Paseo Colon scheduled for Sunday, June 30, still stands.
