Pride Week Events - May 24th to May 31st

We are excited to share our first year open with you for Pride! Our goal for Pride is to raise funding for SETAC and giving back to the local community. We are offering an exciting campground experience with Rancho Mi Abeulo, we have multiple events including a Celebration of Life Dance in addition to Pink & Proud on Friday, a Red Dress Party hosted by the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence on Saturday, and a special event for SETAC on Sunday.
 
As we release our plans for Pride we will fall under the umbrella of Nuestro Orgullo meaning “Our Pride”.
 
The global COVID-19 Pandemic hit SETAC particularly hard, like so many other nonprofits around the world, because they have relied so much on financial support from Vallarta’s LGBT business community since they began more than 11 years ago. This community saw its revenues dry up virtually overnight when the tourist trade shut down completely in Spring 2020. Since then, with so many in the business community struggling not to go bankrupt, they have had to rely on occasional donations from international supporters just to keep the doors open. They’re predicting that it will be well into 2022 before the local economy recovers enough to be able to start supporting them again in the ways they traditionally have. So, while tourism is now picking up and is expected to continue expanding this year, they are not yet out of the woods by any means, and are still counting on donations from U.S. and Canadian friends and supporters.
 
SETAC provides HIV medication, PrEP, Counseling Services, Lab Work, and Transgender Support. There are over 2,500 locals making use of SETAC services

Red Dress Party Puerto Vallarta

Saturday May 29th 8pm-til LATE

We wanted to celebrate Pride in PV while supporting our LGBTQi charities that care for the local community.  So we did what any good business owners would do?   We called in our Sisters!

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence will be in PV for Pride calling attention to our need to support HIV related causes. Our Red Dress Party will be a fundraiser for SETAC.

Red Dress parties are synonymous with HIV awareness and fundraising. It is an opportunity to put on that Red Dress and show us your inner Diva while showing your support for a great cause. 

If the dress gets too hot, throw on a red suit or a birthday suit and take a dip in our HUGE clothing optional pool. 

We will have:

  • Bears in Bikini’s  contest hosted by the Sisters.
  • Underwear Auctions
  • Best Dress Fashion Show
  • DJ’s
  • VIP Bottle Service

SETAC Sunday

Estrellas locales trans y drag en batalla de lipsing, con pool party y DJ.

We will roll out the red carpet for the transgendered community and will make them our stars. SETAC will have great DJ’s auctions, a lot of gratitue towards the city of Puerto Vallarta and we will show them our gratitude as well. 

Many More Details to Come!!!!!
