Marchers fill the street for the annual gay pride parade in Puebla

Overshadowed by Mexico City but a big destination in its own right

Esa página está disponible también en español.

The city of Puebla, formally Puebla de Zaragoza, is the capital and the most populous city of the state of Puebla and is the 4th largest metro area in México. It was an important city as well in colonial times so you will find a lovely colonial center. Now it is known for its many universities and industry.

Most of the action is in the Historic Center but the university suburb of San Andrés Cholula also has a number of LGBT nightlife options.

With about 50% of the state's population in the metropolitan area of the capital, other areas do not have much of a developed LGBT community and we are not aware of any LGBT bars or meeting places outside the capital region. Let us know if you discover some!

Same-sex marriage has been legal in Puebla state since Aug 2017.
