KISSIMMEE, Fla. – The City of Kissimmee and Osceola County announce the inaugural PrideFest Kissimmee event, a celebration grounded in welcoming, fostering awareness of, and acknowledging the impactful contributions of members from the local lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community. The event will be held Saturday, June 10, 2017, from noon to 5 p.m. at Kissimmee’s Lakefront Park.

City of Kissimmee Mayor Jose Alvarez observed, “It is important we recognize community members having positive and impactful contributions, including those from the LGBTQ community. We know people want to live where they feel welcomed, and by hosting PrideFest Kissimmee we are showing the world the City of Kissimmee celebrates and welcomes cultural diversity and is a city that anyone can call home.”

The inaugural event will closely coincide with the first anniversary of the Pulse Club tragedy, which occurred in downtown Orlando on June 12, 2016, and resulted in the loss of 49 lives and significant injuries to more than 50 people. “We will always remember and celebrate the lives of the victims of this tragedy that affected so many residents of Osceola County and Central Florida,” said Osceola County Commissioner Cheryl Grieb. “In a demonstration of solidarity and a spirit of healing with the LGBTQ community, the County has provided assistance of all kinds to the victims and families over the past year. We continue to demonstrate that we are an inclusive community and that we will always respect all our residents and the diversity that makes us stronger together.” The City of Kissimmee and Osceola County are home to several of the surviving families. In honor of those families’ loss and the community’s grief, the event will commemorate the anniversary with a tribute during the opening ceremony.

PrideFest Kissimmee continues a long tradition of Pride Festivals and celebrations over the past 40 years promoting visibility, civil rights, and self-confidence in cities worldwide. This free event is open to the public and will have an opening ceremony, feature exhibitors, advocacy organizations, live music, food trucks, and a kid’s activity zone.
