?Summer?s almost here, and with it, endless parades, street festivals, pool dances and other occasions to enjoy. We will be whetting your appetite/driving you back to the gym/making you reach for the tanning oil, with our occasional series of snapshots from the best parties as they happen.
First up: Miami Pride.
The second annual event took place April 16 and saw over 40,000 people partying down the sandy promenade of Ocean Drive. Some may lament South Beach?s passing prime as the gay Florida destination, but with new homo hubs like the Lords South Beach and revived clubs plus annual events such as this, we think the city still knows how to bring the heat -- in a speedo, naturally.
