It’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 12pm on April 9, 2017, 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, our friends, co-workers and allies-- along with Pride sponsor organizations, groups and businesses.
Best Parade Entry Contest
For the fifth time, Miami Beach Gay Pride will be awarding the best entry in the parade for encompassing the most creative approach in the spirit of Pride . Besides being announced as the winner at Pride in front of a mass audience, the winner will be acknowledged on the Miami Beach Gay Pride Parade plaque at Miami Beach's LGBT Visitor Center. This will be on display for the community to see for years to come. Do you think you have what it takes to bring home this prestigious recognition? We hope you’ll bring it!
In trying to provide the safest environment for our guests, this year we are partnering with the City of Miami Beach and the Miami Beach Police Department and asking to please refrain from bringing back packs, large bags, etc. If you must bring these type of items this year PLEASE make all attempts to bring a see through bag.
Our number one priority is a SAFE, and fun Prideful day.
