The OUTshine LGBTQ+ Film Festival Miami is back – bolder, brighter and in-person! Internationally acclaimed as one of the largest LGBTQ+ cultural festivals in the world, OUTShine returns for its 24th edition to unite the community through premier social events and programs like its Closing Night Film & Awards Celebration on May 1 that inspire, entertain, educate and encourage a sense of community. “Cop Secret (Leyniliogga)” (2021) (Iceland) will close out the fest with a 6 p.m. screening at the Sandrell Rivers Theater in Miami. The film will be followed by the annual audience film awards soiree featuring light bites, and open bar by Bacardi and entertainment courtesy of DJ Hottpants.

Cop movie clichés have been sent-up before, but this Icelandic action comedy takes the homoerotic subtext of so many buddy movies and unapologetically comes “out” all guns blazing. Rival law enforcers, rough-edged Bussi and slick hunky, ex-model Hördur reluctantly join forces to stop criminal mastermind Rikki Ferrari. Desperate as they are to stop Ferrari’s bank heists, they may just, despite Bússi’s initial denial, want each other even more. Cop Secret embraces the genre’s more ludicrous tropes and gleefully squeezes them tighter. While a hard-hitting action flick, at its core is a tender romance. If Michael Bay made a gay Lethal Weapon…this would be what it looks like.

OUTshine LGBTQ+ Film Festival Miami’s 2022 line-up features more than 45 international features and documentary screenings, panel discussions, three shorts programs, exclusive virtual showings, Cocktails & Cinema Happy Hours and incredible parties across various venues in Miami-Dade County through May 1.

OUTrageous, OUTspoken, and OUTstanding, the 24th annual OUTshine Film Festival Miami is presented by Lexus, Gilead and Miami-Dade County.

OUTshine LGBTQ+ Film Festival Miami, internationally acclaimed as one of the largest LGBTQ+ cultural festivals in the world, will open its 24th edition with the first Florida live screening of “B-Boy Blues” (2021) at The Black Archives Historic Lyric Theater on April 22 at 7 p.m. Producer Circle members and filmmakers will enjoy a 5:30 p.m. pre-event Filmmakers Soirée.

“B-Boy Blues” USA (2021), is an African American romantic comedy-drama based on the 1994 groundbreaking, and beloved classic book by James Earl Hardy. Class and culture clash when Mitchell, a college-educated journalist from Brooklyn, and Raheim, a homeboy-bike messenger from Harlem, fall in love. Despite his friends’ misgivings and several red flags, Mitchell is enraptured by the incredibly sexy and smooth Raheim, but the repercussions of their mutual obsession will affect his work, friendships, and family. Described as “Moonlight” meets “Queer As Folk,” this unapologetic celebration of African American gay men will leave you wanting more. The film stars Timothy Richardson, Thomas Mackie, Brandee Evans, Landon G. Woodson, Ledisi and Heather B. “B-Boy Blues” was the recipient of the 2021 Narrative Feature Fan Favorite at American Black Film Festival and an official selection of Queer Screen’s Mardi Gras Fil Festival 2022.

An opening night party will also follow the film with guest of honor and Vanguard Award winner Patricia Velásquez. Velásquez is best known for her portrayal of Anck-su-namun in “The Mummy” (1990) and its sequel, “The Mummy Returns” (2001).

She was appointed the UNESCO Artist for Peace and is a Goodwill Ambassador at the Organization of the American States.

Who/What:
Thousands of walkers and runners will make strides in the ongoing fight against drunk driving during the 11th Annual UKG Walk Like MADD & MADD Dash Fort Lauderdale 5K brought to you by the Sheriff’s Foundation of Broward County. Runners and walkers will participate in the in-person race on Sunday, April 24 at Huizenga Plaza in Fort Lauderdale. The organization will also provide a virtual participation option and continue to monitor the evolving impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The day’s festivities will also include children’s activities, an awards ceremony, live musical performances and vendor/educational booths. The event will be attended by dignitaries including Walk Like MADD Fort Lauderdale Founder and Honorary Chairperson Heather Geronemus, Volunteer Chairperson Colonel Nichole Anderson, Undersheriff of Broward Sheriff’s Office and Major Robert Chandler of Florida Highway Patrol.

Walk Like MADD & MADD Dash Fort Lauderdale is a community-driven 5K that raises awareness about drunk driving and underage drinking and unites community members around MADD’s mission. Since it was established in 2011, this event has raised over $3 million that stays in our community to save lives and support victims of drunk driving, making it the most successful grassroots fundraiser in the history of Mothers Against Drunk Driving. Every dollar donated remains in South Florida to provide victim services and prevention education at no cost.

“Every 48 minutes, someone is killed by a drunk driver. With this event, we are raising both awareness and funds to eliminate drunk and drugged driving and provide free victim services and prevention education in South Florida,” said Heather Geronemus, who is also MADD national chairwoman. Her late father, Dr. Robert Perry Geronemus, was struck and killed by a drunk driver in 2009.

“Despite the decrease in miles traveled during the pandemic, traffic fatalities continue to increase, and drunk driving is still the deadliest killer on our nation’s roadways, claiming more than 11,000 lives and injuring more than 350,000 innocent people each year. Thanks to the support from our sponsors, participants, and donors, we continue to work toward a future of no more victims,” said Broward Sheriff’s Office Colonel Nichole Anderson, Undersheriff.

Event sponsors include Signature Sponsor UKG, Presenting Sponsor Sheriff’s Foundation of Broward County, State Safety Champion Sponsor Alert Today Florida, Corporate Champion Sponsor La Croix, and Spotlight Sponsor Searcy Denney.

The event kickoff will take place at The Oasis on June 18, 2021, followed by a neighborhood-wide takeover on June 19th. The Wynwood Business Improvement District (BID) is partnering with Wynwood Pride to host a wide range of activations at popular neighborhood hot spots like The Oasis, 1-800-Lucky, Coyo Taco, Freehold, R House, Pizza & Beer, Veza Sur, No. 3 Social, and more with live concert series, neighborhood-wide drag shows, all-day dance parties, surprise celebrity appearances, and new Pride mural installations.

“The Wynwood community is proud of its partnership with Wynwood Pride and commemorate National Pride Month in support of our LGBTQ+ residents, visitors and the communities we serve,” said Albert Garcia, chairman and co-founder of the Wynwood BID. “Wynwood is a community that proudly embraces diversity and inclusion. Over the past few years, Wynwood Pride has brought together thousands of people to celebrate Miami’s growing LGBTQ+ community. This year, extra care has been taken to curate one-of-a-kind, outdoor experiences and activations across Wynwood’s beloved cultural, entertainment and culinary venues.”

Wynwood’s newest culinary and entertainment venue, The Oasis, will act as the main stage for major headliner performances, top local & national DJs, RuPaul’s Drag Race Icons, celebrity hosts, and more. 1-800-Lucky, a 10,000-square-foot Asian-fusion market with indoor and outdoor seating, will present a booming soundtrack by both local and international DJs. R House will host Drag Brunches, Miss Wynwood Pageant, and other outstanding performances honoring Miami’s most fabulous drag performers. The Freehold Wynwood will also keep the party going with an All-Day Disco, featuring funk and house music with non-stop DJ sets and a Sunday cool-down, and closing party with DJ Eli Escobar.

“Wynwood Pride is thrilled to return for its third year with an incredibly progressive lineup that speaks to our diversity as a community and celebrates our past while looking towards the future,” said Jose Atencio, organizer of the Wynwood Pride Festival 2021. “Last year, Wynwood Pride pivoted to a digital celebration, but we are ready to safely come together and once again create some Pride magic together after this past year of being apart.”

“The LGBTQ+ community is an integral part of Miami’s cultural fabric. We’re excited to partner with Wynwood Pride and welcome the community to celebrate at The Oasis, Wynwood’s newest culinary and entertainment venue” said Sven Vogtland, co-owner of The Oasis, Coyo Taco and 1-800-Lucky.

A Celebration of Jamaica’s 59th year of Independence with aCall for Healing the Community through the vibrations of SoundSystem Culture.Miami Reggae Festival 2021 Celebrates Jamaica’s Independence Weekend with a Call for Healing the Community through Sound System Culture. Miami Reggae Festival weekend takes place on Saturday, August 7th and Sunday, August 8th, 2021. In their seventh year of presenting Miami Reggae Festival, Rockers Movement goes back to basics with a shift toward Jamaica’s Sound System Culture in solidarity, building on the foundation of the positive vibrations of Reggae and symbolizing the self-determination of our communities to survive.

The Annual Miami Reggae Festival 2021 celebrates the 59th year of Jamaica’s Independence with a call for healing the community and featuring the very best of Sound Systems from around the world (in alphabetical order): Adonai Sound, Bass Odyssey, Big Life Sound, Downbeat The Ruler, King Addies International, King Champion, King Waggy Tee, Ontrack Disco, Poison Dart, Rocksteadyy, Soul Supreme, Stone Love, Super Storm, Warrior Sound International and hosted by Mutabaruka.

Miami Reggae Festival is an Annual Charitable Music and Arts Festival with a 2021 focus on Healing the Community to gain the mental strength needed to renew a sense of oneness through this next phase of the global health crises. And to enhance the goodness, visitors can enjoy arts and crafts, dominoes, fresh juices and delicious Caribbean Jerk and Curries – all within the foundational groove of the Sound Systems.  Caribbean food is world renowned for its flavorful dishes which feature the richness of Jerk and curry seasonings and such favorites as, curried goat, oxtails, rice and peas, roti, red snapper, patties with coco bread, a wide variety of vegan options and the refreshment of fresh coconut water and cane juice.  This is a Caribbean banquet to enjoy with loved ones after time spent locked away and a chance to listen to some good Roots, Rock, Reggae and Dub music.

Miami Reggae Festival fuses food, arts and Reggae to raise awareness about extreme poverty as we come together for healing during Jamaica’s Independence weekend – a time of reflection on our individual contributions, for reverence in appreciation of what we have, for levity and lightheartedness, and also for peace as we expand our consciousness through the joy of celebration and charitable giving.

Cost: Prices for individual films are $7.50 each and value packages range from $37.50 to $100.

The 12th edition of the OUTshine LGBTQ+ Film Festival Fort Lauderdale, a bi-annual film festival whose mission is to unite the community through social events and LGBTQ+ media that inspire, entertain, and educate, is going virtual! Building upon the success of its Miami-based virtual film festival held online earlier this year, the Fort Lauderdale edition, presented by Gilead Sciences and Broward County, will showcase 21 world-class contemplative, comedic and creative films from 11 countries, (several making their US debuts during the streaming festival). All of the films will be made available to viewers throughout the state of Florida from December 3 – 6, 2020. The festival will also host livestreamed special events with cocktail happy hours, talent and Q & A sessions as a way to virtually tie the community together.

In keeping with social distancing guidelines and community safety, this year’s festival will feature the OUTshine Drive-OUT film Cowboys (USA), a critically acclaimed drama, on Thursday, December 4, at 7 p.m. at Pier 66 Marina (2150 SE 17th Street in Fort Lauderdale). Awarded “Outstanding Performance in a U.S. Feature” at Outfest LGBT Film Festival and “Best Screenplay” at the TriBeCa Film Festival, Cowboys stars Steve Zahn (Treme’, Modern Family, Dallas Buyers Club) as Troy, a father who tries to liberate his young transgender son by taking him to Canada, but as a frustrated female detective spearheads an investigation, she discovers that the child’s family situation is more complicated than she thought. Director Anna Kerrigan has created a powerful story that propels this modern-day western forward with an uncommon emotional veracity.

Another event of note in this year’s line-up is the Saturday, December 5, 7 p.m. free community 10th anniversary screening of BearCity (USA), an outrageous, hilarious and authentic touching portrait of a group of friends trying to get by via laughing, loving and sex-ing in New York City. A virtual cast reunion and interactive Q & A will follow the film. Other highlights include the US premiere of the romantic drama Walking with Shadows (Nigeria), the award-winning international comedy-drama Goodbye Mother (Thưa mẹ con đi) (Vietnam), the award-winning international drama No Hard Feelings (Germany) and the feature thriller Through A Glass Darkly (USA). A virtual closing awards ceremony will take place on Sunday, December 6, at 8 p.m. via Zoom.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and nothing sets the Holiday Season into full swing more than the lighting of Downtown Miami’s Christmas Tree. The iconic 50-foot tree that sits in the middle of Bayfront Park will serve as the center and focal point of the Bayskate roller-skating rink at Bayfront Holiday Village. On Saturday November 30, it will receive a celebrity filled countdown and illumination worthy of a million twinkling lights. South Florida celebrities and dignitaries will be on-hand to light the tree and set the LED animation into musical motion, including Mayor Francis Suarez of the City of Miami and Commissioner Joe Carollo, Chairman of the Bayfront Park Trust. The tree will trip the light fantastic to three different festive musical shows produced by Grammy winner, A.T. Molina, who is the original producer/creator of the Burrito Sabanero mix. Enrique Santos from Tu949 will join Sasha Jones, Consumer Investigative Reporter for NBC 6 and Alejandra Molina, News Anchor at Telemundo 51, to host the event, along with Santa Claus, who is scheduled to arrive in Miami fashion via a yacht. Together, they will make sure that this tree will continue to serve as Santa’s guiding light to Miami.

“This is a special tree, because after the initial lighting ceremony, we will have mini lighting ceremonies every night all the way through Christmas. Not just every night, but every hour,” says Tony Albelo, SWARM CEO and event organizer. Each night starting at 6PM, the park will become quiet, the music will rev up, and the tree will display one of the most beautifully animated light shows ever sequenced. Those who miss the initial tree-lighting ceremony on November 30, will have an opportunity to experience it again and again while enjoying hot cocoa and churros or sipping seasonal cocktails such as the Peppermint Mojito, Mistletoe Mule, White Christmas Margarita or Winter Bourbon Smash at the North Pole Beach Club.

The lighting of the 50-ft animated tree at Bayfront Holiday Village will mark the opening of this picture-perfect, outdoor, holiday venue filled with larger-than-life holiday displays, waterfront roller-skating, local vendors, nightly music and top food and drink offerings. Whether you’re chilling at the North Pole Beach Club, partaking in the Gnauhty Gnome Scavenger Hunt, or taking a selfie with Santa, there’s something for everyone!

WHEN:
Saturday, November 30, 2019 | 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Santa arrives at 7:30 p.m. sharp!
