First Pride? No idea where to start? Start Here.
Stonewall Pride celebrates the historic Stonewall Riots and the start of the LGBT+ human rights movement and how it has shaped our community. Each year we come together to produce attention grabbing drag shows and new aged beats by South Florida's hottest DJ's. Thousands travel from all across the world to the City of Wilton Manors, locally known as "The Island City". For 20 years this "Gayborhood" has brought millions together though LGBTQIA+ pride, history and entertainment.
30 DAYS OF PRIDE EVENTS
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.
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.
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.
