Miami Beach Celebrates Gay Pride!

On April 15th, 40,000 people came out to celebrate Gay Pride in Miami Beach. The parade took place along Ocean Drive with the beach and palm trees on one side and beautiful art deco hotels on the other. The crowd was an enthusiastic mix of men and women, young and old, of all nationalities. My partner and I had the opportunity to ride on a double decker bus with staff and supporters of The Miami-Dade Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. The parade and festival here is one of the best in the world. Participants and onlookers alike shared in the spectacle of love and achievement that the parade symbolized for so many. Afterwards, everyone headed to the sand to eat, drink, dance and meet the LGBT organizations and companies that had set up booths displaying there products. Mark your calendars for next year’s Miami Beach Gay Pride, as this is one event you do not want to miss.
