WHO WE ARE
Your silence will not protect you.
- Audre Lorde
Miami Beach Pride brings together members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community, their friends, allies, and supporters in celebration of the unique spirit and culture of the LGBTQ+ community.
It is our mission to envision, plan and execute a roster of events and activities that are as diverse as the community itself, including activations centering on entertainment, events, arts, culture and civic and social engagement.
Miami Beach Gay Pride, Inc /Miami Beach Pride Festival & Parade 2022 is sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, and the National Endowment for the Arts. We are also supported by the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners and the City of Miami Beach.
Miami Beach Pride was established by former Miami Beach Mayor Matti Bower in 2008 as an initiative of the Miami Beach Gay Business Development Council.
