Broward County is the most diverse county in Florida and the second most diverse in the nation (we’re coming for you, Queens, New York!). More than 58 percent of our population is minorities, 32 percent were born in another country, and approximately 79 percent of those foreign-born residents are from Latin America.

Couple that hospitality and those demographics with a supremely motivated and well-organized host organization, and, frankly, it’s hard to imagine launching Pride of the Americas anywhere else.

So, what can you look forward to in 2020?

Celebrating Pride with 350,000 other LGBT folk and friends from around the world.

The main event on a Sunday will feature a parade and beach festival, capped off with a spectacular fireworks show. But organizers are envisioning a full week of Pride festivities, including opening ceremonies, an arts festival, a business expo, and a human rights conference focused on LGBT rights in the Caribbean and Latin America, plus daily sunset concerts, a beach party, and dance parties and other social activities at venues all over town.

I’m seeing feathers. Lots of feathers.

Pride of the Americas takes place from April 21 – 26, 2020.
