Easily the single most exciting festival to ever be incepted by a city mayor, Miami Beach Gay Pride is an “everyone’s welcome” parade every bit as empowering as it is entertaining. Started in 2009 with a little over 15,000 spectators, last year’s festivities included over 130,000 participants and a slew of celebrity appearances, all well worth the almost overly stimulating stroll through Ocean Drive. A powerful testament to the strength of equality in our community, this lively debacle is always just as enjoyable for allies as the portion of the population it emancipates. Previous prominent Grand Marshals include Mario Lopez and Gloria Estefan — meaning this year’s programming is sure to be full of photo opps and social media-worthy posts; MiamiBeachGayPride.com.
Bringing new meaning to “must-have,” the pandemic has ushered in a new trend — blinged out face masks, cloth coverings, PPE, shields, neck gaiters, bandanas — whatever you decided to wear, these unexpected fashion accessories can literally save lives.
Brickell City Centre has become a destination in its own regard. Swire Properties has developed a place where the community wants to be, hang out, and enjoy their time with loved ones while shopping at some of the world’s top retailers in a vibrant destination in the heart of Downtown Miami that’s second to none.
