To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Miami Beach Gay Pride today announced a dynamic duo of Grand Marshals – Olympic silver medalist Gus Kenworthy and NBC6 anchor and host Roxanne Vargas. The two Marshals will be honored at events throughout Pride Week and will lead the loud and colorful parade down Ocean Drive on Sunday, April 8, beginning at noon. Miami Beach Gay Pride is presented by Celebrity Cruises and takes place April 2-8 at venues throughout Miami Beach.
“Gus and Roxy are two preeminent public figures who well represent and support the LGBTQA community. Gus for being a role model as an out and proud sportsman who excels at his craft and Roxy for being a prominent ally for the community and equal rights,” said Mark Fernandes, chairman of the Pride board of directors.
