Key West has a lot to be proud of. The City’s official motto is “One Human Family.” The Business Guild is one of the nation’s first gay and lesbian chambers of commerce, established in 1978, and Key West has been welcoming GLBT visitors and their friends long before that time. Key West has its own Gay and Lesbian Community Center (GLCC) complete with Museum and Archive, the Guild’s Visitor Center located within The Center, and the only City Aids Memorial in the Country.
PrideFest is produced by the GLCC and consists of: Dance and cocktail parties, Mr., Ms, and Miss Pride contests, shows, street fair and the Pride Parade along Duval Street. The Key West Pride Festival is a 9 day event, June 6 – 14, consisting of an array of cultural events that celebrate the incredibly diverse community that supports or identifies with gay, lesbian, transsexual, transgendered, intersex, two-spirited and queer people and their allies.
