Stonewall Pride Parade &
Street Festival

June 19th, 2021

All Are Welcome

The Stonewall Pride Parade and Street Festival typically attracts 35,000 spectators and has a direct economic impact of more than a million dollars for the City of Wilton Manors, according to an independent study.

Plans for 2021 call for the street festival with music and vendors to begin on Saturday, June 19 at 3 p.m. followed by a parade at 7 p.m. when temperatures fall. The one-day event ends at 11 p.m.

“Our twilight parade with the theme, “Out of the Darkness, Into the Light” is a great way for businesses to get involved, have fun and thank the LGBTQ+ community for their loyalty and support,” said Jeff Sterling, CEO of WMEG Community Marketing and Events which organizes the annual celebration.

Stonewall Pride celebrates the historic Stonewall Riots and the start of the LGBT+ human rights movement and how it has shaped our community.

30 DAYS OF PRIDE EVENTS

Celebrating FREEDOM

The right to freedom of expression is enshrined in Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which sets out in broad terms the human rights that each of us has. It was later protected legally by a raft of international and regional treaties. At Stonewall everyone is welcomed.

Celebrating LOVE

On June 26, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court held in a 5–4 decision that the Fourteenth Amendment requires all states to grant same-sex marriages and recognize same-sex marriages granted in other states. At Stonewall we celebrate the victories for equal rights and highlight the fights that continue today.

Celebrating CREATIVITY

LGBTQ (Queer) people have dominated creative professions for a long time. From Sappho to Bessie Smith to Michelangelo to Gertrude Stein to Margaret Cho to Pedro Almodovar to Ang Lee (a random sampling), queer people have revolutionized their medium and reached world fame. In fashion, especially, designers like Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, Gianni Versace… The list is never-ending. At Stonewall we celebrate Queer creativity in all mediums and industries.
