Itâ€™s time to show the world our extraordinary beauty, strength, unity, talent, and creativity! And what better way to kick off our Extraordinary Day OUT than with a big, bold, colorful parade?
Starting at noontime on April 17, the length of Ocean Drive along the Art Deco district will be closed to traffic and open wide to our proud South Florida lesbian, gay, bi, and transgender families, Miami Beach Mayor Matti Bower, our friends, co-workers and allies– along with Pride sponsor organizations, groups and businesses.
The parade route will run from 5th to 15th Street on Ocean Drive, ending at the Miami Beach Pride Festival and Expo.
Lesbian. Gay. Bi. Trans. Straight. PROUD. Miami Beach Gay Pride is an extraordinary celebration that brings out the best in us all.
