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.

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.
