Miami Beach invites LGBTQ travelers to celebrate Pride Month
As of September 3, the city will host several important events
Recognized for years as the "Best LGBTQ Destination" by the prestigious Travvy Awards, Miami Beach invites travelers to celebrate their pride all month long with a number of specialty events. Starting September 3rd, the city will host several marquee events including a Queer Art Showcase, Miss Miami Beach Pride Pageant, Legends Ball, and more to shine a light on LGBTQ+ culture. The city's largest initiative, Miami Beach Pride, kicks off September 10th and features the weekend-long Miami Beach Pride Festival.
"Miami Beach is home to a large LGBTQ+ family and we continue to work hard to provide safe and inclusive events, hotels, restaurants, and attractions that cater specifically to the LGBTQ+ community," says Steve Adkins, Chairman of the Miami Beach Visitor and Convention Authority (MBVCA). "Our city embraces all travelers with open arms, and we're encouraging visitors to join us this month as we launch a wide selection of events to recognize the LGBTQ+ community."
Home to key organizations like the LGBT Visitor Center in Miami Beach and the Miami-Dade Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, the destination continues to offer and introduce initiatives in support of the LGBTQ community.
"We're thrilled to officially kick off Miami Beach Pride this year and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community with our guests, locals, and tourists from across the U.S.," Peter Anthonii Carey, director of marketing and PR for Miami Beach Pride. "It's critical that destinations cultivate safe spaces where the LGBTQ+ community can celebrate all year long, and not just in June during Pride Month. Miami Beach continues to excel as a city that provides something for everyone to enjoy, no matter the time of year, and it's an honor to work, live, and play in a city that's truly like no other place in the world."
