Miami Beach Progress Pride Flag Raising
(Miami Beach, FL) Sep 9, 2021 -
The City of Miami Beach welcomes the return of Miami Beach Pride with a ceremonial raising of the Progress Pride Flag outside City Hall on Friday, Sept. 10, 2021 at 5:30 p.m., which will be followed by the popular “Pride Lights the Night” at 7 p.m. along nearby Lincoln Road.
As one of the most diverse cities in the world, the Progress Pride Flag flies year-round alongside the American flag outside Miami Beach City Hall at 1700 Convention Center Drive.
Unlike the traditional Rainbow Flag, the Progress Pride Flag incorporates black and brown stripes to represent communities of color along with the pink, light blue and white colors that make up the Transgender Pride Flag. Additional elements form an arrow that points toward the right in a forward movement to symbolize future progress.
“Pride Lights the Night” at 1111 Lincoln Road will feature remarks by a survivor from the 2016 Pulse Nightclub mass shooting and a representative of the Trans People of Color Coalition. Attendees will see one of the city’s most glamorous parking garage as it is transformed into rainbow colors.
Miami Beach Pride, which runs from Sept. 10-19, brings together members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community, their friends, allies and supporters to celebrate the unique spirit and culture of the LGBTQ+ community in Miami Beach.
