Miami Beach Bruthaz (MBB) was founded in July 2006 as an annual LGBTQ summer lifestyle event on Miami Beach. While MBB is open to any and all individuals regardless of race, gender, sexual preference or orientation, this event’s beginnings were rooted in raising awareness of the increasing HIV /AIDs rates within minority gay communities.  The goal of Miami Beach Bruthaz is to build an educational and informative platform for the LGBTQ community to participate in a high-energy, intimate and interactive event.

The mission of MBB is to foster an environment of inclusion and provide a platform for LGBTQ communities to come together annually, where the sharing of support, empowerment, and celebration is encouraged through themed celebrations and a group of interactive events across a four-day weekend. The weekend of events are focused around and embody a central theme: Knowledge, Culture, and Fashion, as such they host events targeting healthy lifestyle and living, which includes but is not limited to nurturing healthy relationships between families, partners, friends, and community.

For the first time, MBB has moved its weekend of events to Fort Lauderdale. The event is sponsored this year by Hunters Nightclubs Wilton Manors, and the official hotel is the Grand Resort and Spa!  Book Now at Or Call 1-800-818-1211 or 954-630-6000.
