MIAMI BEACH, - El cuarto desfile anual del orgullo gay en Miami se celebrará este domingo, 15 de abril a lo largo de Ocean Drive en South Beach.

Este año el gran mariscal del desfile es Chaz Bono, el hijo de Cher, que además de ser personalidad de la televisión y activista se hizo famoso por documentar su proceso de cambiarse de sexo de mujer a hombre.

Chaz también tiene planeado dar una conferencia para estudiantes y la comunidad en general en la Universidad Internacional de la Florida (FIU) al día siguiente.

El desfile toma lugar a lo largo de Ocean Drive entre las Calles 5 y 15. Comienza puntualmente a las 12 del mediodía, pero es recomendado llegar una hora antes para estacionar y coger un buen puesto. Después continúa la fiesta con música gratis en vivo, comidas y bebida a la venta y este año una zona dedicada a las familias con atracciones para niños.

Además del desfile y fiesta principal del domingo, hay una lista de fiestas y eventos relacionados que se llevan a cabo todo el fin de semana.

El año pasado Elvis Crespo le brindo su apoyo a la comunidad gay como gran mariscal del desfile.

Aquí está la lista de eventos:
