Shade of Pride: An LGBTQ+ Anniversary Celebration
Shades of Pride will celebrate the history of June 16th while showcasing the art and culture of our black and brown LGBTQ+ siblings. Join us to learn about the profound impact of black and brown culture on the LGBTQ+ community as a whole and its deep roots in the evolution of Pride. We deliberately focus on the all too often unheard voices of the black and brown LGBTQ+ community by enhancing their experience through an educational panel, The Legends Panel: The Intersection of Pride and Juneteenth, local entertainment and community providers. St. Pete Pride will welcome national talent Ts Madison, aka Maddie, to host the Shades of Pride event. Madison is a reality television personality, entrepreneur, actress and LGBTQIA+ activist. Through her reality show The Ts Madison Experience, she became the first black trans woman to star and executive produce her own reality series.
Arts and diversity play critical roles in the lives of individuals and communities, and it is our duty to fight for the authenticity of each and every member of the LGBTQ+ community in Florida and around the world. Without People of Color there would be no Pride and it is our honor and obligation to ensure that this is reflected in every aspect of our celebration.
This is a free event and open to the public. Limited VIP tickets available for $50.
