For European Snow Pride - Powered by SCRUFF, the “Fierté Montpellier-Tignes Pride” association organised the fourth edition of the only Gay Pride event in a ski resort at 2,100 m. On 18 March 2018, Tignes had the privilege of opening the Pride ball celebrating diversity and LGBT love (Lesbian - Gay - Bi - Trans). Showtime was guaranteed with carnival floats, performers and a set by DJ Creamy. A very colourful programme!
In 2013, the resort demonstrated its support for same-sex marriages by inviting the first same-sex married couple to Tignes for a holiday. As a result, a beautiful friendship was formed between Bruno and Vincent Boileau-Autin and Tignes. On the 5th anniversary of the legalisation of "Same-Sex Marriage", it was only natural that Vincent and Bruno would be guests of honour at the 2018 Gay Pride event in Tignes.
As it has done every winter since 2008, Tignes flies the rainbow flag, the symbol of the LGBT community and hosts European Snow Pride - Powered by SCRUFF, from 17 to 24 March 2018: a week of skiing and partying dedicated to LGBTs from around the world. Tignes continues to express its open-mindedness with this 4th Gay Pride event and openly promotes itself as "THE" LGBT ski resort in France.
