FORT LAUDERDALE – Pride One of Broward County, Inc. (d/b/a Pride South Florida), producer of Pridefest, has announced a working partnership with Stonewall Summer Pride, to be known as Pride United of Broward.
“We are very excited about working with Pride South Florida,” said Greg Hardy, Board member of Stonewall Summer Pride and the Rainbow Business Coalition of Greater Fort Lauderdale, which co-produces Stonewall Summer Pride in Wilton Manors. “Working together on projects and events, we can bring a unified voice that has been long absent in Pride organizations in Broward County.”
The first joint event was a booth at Oktoberfest in Oakland Park, during the weekend of October 5, with representatives of both organizations attending.X
“South Florida’s LGBT community has yet to realize the full power of our influence,” said Marc Hansen, President of Pride South Florida. “We tend to be our own speed bump in the road to our true equality instead of coming together and putting aside our own self-induced labels, prejudices and ill will, and truly work together as a community.”
