The summer is upon us and along with Summertime here in Florida comes many pride celebrations. This past weekend I made the trip down to South Beach to represent Central Florida, with the rest of the Hotspots crew at the annual Miami Beach Pride event. The turnout was amazing, fun was had by all and I got to hang out and chat with Adam Lambert, who was the guest performer for this year’s pride celebration along with my friend Crystal Waters. It was so great to get to see so many of my friends from Tampa, Orlando and Miami all having fun…after all, that’s what pride is all about! As always, until next week…much love to you all!
