Best things to do this weekend in Santiago (May 13 - 15)

This weekend we have something a little different: events that celebrate gender equality and the LGBT community. From the Riot Grrrl Matucana Punk show to the Feminist Street Art fair, culminating in the March for Equality Saturday, there'll be plenty going on if you want to get involved. That's not all, though: get your reading glasses on Friday and head on down to Cafe Literario Bustamante's "Masked Poetry" event or the Universidad de Chile's independent book fair for some literary entertainment. If you're more in a partying mood, we've got another weekend chock-full of DJ Parties and live music events that will get your body moving.

Remember every Friday we'll post our picks for the weekend and please check this space often as we may update it with changes and/or new events that pop up. Enjoy!
