One part LGBTQ Pride, one part Latinx Realness, Celebrate ORGULLO is bringing Everything to the ball and holding nothing back in celebration of its 9th anniversary, October 1-15, 2020.

Celebrate ORGULLO 2020 will help the community navigate out of, reflect on and rise from an unprecedented global crisis. The festival will explore how Unity in Diversity can inspire through art, society, music, rhythm, crisis, hope, and self-expression. Celebrate ORGULLO is Miami’s first Hispanic LGBT Pride Festival and it enters its 10th successful year with in-person and virtual events, including an international artists showcase and its renowned ART/DIVA bus tours. Proceeds benefit Unity Coalition | Coalición Unida’s (UC|CU) LGBT Scholarship Fund and year-round programming.
