In a month’s time the city centre will probably be bursting at the seams… the seams of the rainbow flag, a symbol of the LGBT community. Roughly three million visitors are expected to arrive in Madrid to celebrate WorldPride, a huge party that draws massive crowds demanding the right to love without labels. Further to its commitment to diversity, from today on the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum now offers an audio guide in Spanish and English that takes visitors on a queer-themed tour of its collection. You can pick the audio guide up at the same time as you purchase tickets for the museum, for just four extra euros.
