Just how popular though has been made clear by new research which reveals the importance to Spain of the powerful ‘pink pound’. While tourism has been booming in the country in general with a 12% growth in 2015, gay tourism has seen even more spectacular growth with an estimated 28% increase last year.

Counting the LGBT population: 6% of Europeans identify as LGBT 

Counting the LGBT population: 6% of Europeans identify as LGBT  | Visit Gay Spain | Scoop.it

"The size of the LGBT community has been notoriously difficult to measure. Most country censuses don’t ask sexual orientation questions, and the surveys that do attempt to accurately quantify the LGBT population can be stymied by the personal nature of the topic. In our latest survey, we wanted to address these issues and ask our EU respondents how they categorize themselves sexually." The results are quite revealing. 

Fabrice Tasendo's insight:

In this new survey released today, #GaySpain snags the #2 spot with 6.9% of the Spanish population identifying as gay, and nearly twice as many (10%) with people who identify as 'not only heterosexual'  #GayRelevant #VisitGaySpain
