Martin, Juanjo, Chiara and Violeta will give the proclamation of Pride 2024

Four of the most prominent contestants of the latest edition of Operación Triunfo will be in charge of making the proclamation of Pride 2024. Martin, Juanjo, Chiara and Violeta have been recognized as icons of the group for a new generation of young people, after showing themselves “just as they are.” “as they are in front of the camera.”

The organization points out that the latest edition of Operación Triunfo, broadcast on Prime Video, has been a “revolution.” In this way, the four contestants have been chosen as criers for the “visibility they have given to the LGTBIQ+ group, showing themselves as they are before the camera and before the new generations”, according to the official website of Madrid Orgullo.

These will give the proclamation next Wednesday, July 3 from Pedro Zerolo Square, marking the beginning of the festivity that will run from this Friday, June 28 to Sunday, July 7.

This year’s Pride has not come without controversy, with some posters that leave out both the collective’s initials and the multicolored flag, with confetti acting as the main element, as well as drawings of heels, cups and condoms. The coordinator of the festival, Juan Carlos Alonso, has asked that in 2025 work be done so that the entire group feels “represented.”
