GAY TIMES is excited to announce that it will be the Official International Media Partner of Miami Beach Pride 2023.

Taking place from 1 to 16 April, this year marks the 15th anniversary of Miami’s biggest celebration of the LGBTQ+ community.

This year’s festivities include lavish floats, a queer art showcase designed to support local artists, celebrity guests of honour and live performances – all of which will be amplified on the GAY TIMES website and social channels.

The main highlights of Miami Beach Pride will be its Festival and Parade, which both take place across the weekend of 15 and 16 April. 

Thousands are set to march in solidarity along Ocean Drive as part of the Parade to showcase Miami Beach Pride’s commitment to standing up for the region’s LGBTQ+ community, while its Festival will feature a variety of show stopping performances from the likes of Todrick Hall, Shangela and Paloma Mami, among others. 

Another highly anticipated event is the Social Justice, Health and Wellness Evening, which will take place at O Cinema on 12 April. 

It serves as a chance to have an open and educational conversation as Florida’s LGBTQ+ community is subjected to an increasing number of legislative attacks, such as the infamous ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill which was signed into law in March 2022.  

There will also be an Easter Family Picnic on 8 April at Pride Park, which is free for members of the public to attend and will feature an array of activities for children, such as face painting to games and activities. 

“With over 16 days of exciting events, there is truly something for everyone and we have maintained our commitment to keep much of our programming free for the community to be as inclusive as possible,” said Bruce Horwich, the chairman of Miami Beach Pride. 

GAY TIMES will be on the ground in Miami capturing extensive coverage to bring you the most important, powerful and celebratory moments across its closing weekend.
