Pride Month

April is Campus Pride Month at the University of Miami. The annual Miami Beach Gay Pride is a 3-day event in the beginning of April, including LGBTQ-friendly vendors and businesses, celebrities, and performances.

Miami Beach Gay Pride concludes with an annual Gay Pride Parade on Ocean Drive. The University of Miami marches in the parade in a show of support for the LGBTQ+ community. The University of Miami LGBTQ+ community and its allies are welcome to walk alongside Sebastian the Ibis and the U's pride float.

In 2018, the University of Miami was awarded with an award for "Best Parade Entry" at Miami Beach Gay Pride. With over 90 students, faculty, staff, alumni, and allies, the parade is one of our biggest events of the year.
