TAMPA, Florida. – The 8th annual Tampa Pride kicked off Saturday in the courtyard of the Cuban Club in Ybor City, where 100,000 people are expected throughout the day and evening.
“Our Cuban Club courtyard has all of our daytime entertainment, our nighttime party, we also have great VIP vendors here, we’re super excited, lots of energy in this space here, but it’s not working. To end here , we are just a block away on 8th Avenue where our supplier HCC is located, and just one block beyond on 7th Avenue is where our 2022 Diversity Parade will take place this year,” said Trevor James, vice president of administration and sponsorships for Tampa Pride.
Every vendor spot was taken and every spot for a float in the parade was taken, so it was a sold out show.
“We get to build community and show visibility on the streets, at festivals, and then we make sure our people are taken care of by making sure there’s a meaningful impact on the nonprofit grounds. lucrative,” said Steven Romeo of Music City Creative. “Pride is not just about exposure for businesses, but about giving back to the community. It’s a time when the queer community can pool their resources and make sure we have an impact on things like CAN and AHF and tackling the HIV epidemic and moving whatever the ‘gay agenda’ is for you, but take these steps to increase your visibility.”
Pride festivals are big parties. They are also philanthropic events that raise a lot of money for local organizations and across the country.
At this year’s Tampa Pride, dozens of local organizations to international brands donated $500 to $25,000.
100,000 people are expected for this event.
