About Miami Beach Gay Pride

Gay Miami has some of the best beaches in the world, so it makes sense that the city's celebration of LGBTQ life would be held right there, in front of the sea. This incredible beach pride has been taking place every year since 2009, and by the sound of things, we can look forward to a jam-packed program of fun in the sun. Miami has always been a stronghold in terms of LGBTQ culture, and this was reflected in the city's inaugural Pride Parade in 2009, which welcomed an impressive 15,000 people. Since then, Miami Pride has thrived into the city's most significant event of the year, attracting an estimated 170,000 party revelers and welcoming plenty of A-list celebrities, including Iggy Azalea, Jordin Sparks, Gloria Estefan, and Adam Lambert.  

What started as a small neighborhood event has now transformed into a week-long global celebration, welcoming a host of international stars and a jam-packed entertainment program. The highlight is arguably the incredible Pride Parade and Festival, which usually takes place on the last weekend of Miami Beach Pride and includes a colorful parade along Ocean Drive, followed by a fantastic post-parade festival on the beach - could things get any better? The festival lasts two days and usually welcomes big-name DJs and live performers. Food and beverage options are also available, making this THE Pride event to settle into for the weekend! Family booths, expo areas, and family-friendly play areas also make the Miami Beach Pride Festival fun for everyone! 

Miami Beach Pride is an annual celebration that aims to bring members of the LGBTQ community together to experience their pride, embrace diversity, and honor how far LGBTQ rights have come since the Stonewall Uprising of 1969. In 2008, the former Miami Beach Mayor Matti Bower established Miami Gay Pride, with the first event and parade transpiring the following year. Between 2009 and 2013, the number of people attending Miami Gay Pride increased from 18,000 to 80,000. It then jumped to 100,000 the following year and has surpassed this every year since.
