Event Lineup Announced for Miami's Second Annual Pridechilla Summit & Music Festival

Exclusive | Pride

Miami is gearing up for a celebration like no other as the second annual Pridechilla Summit & Music Festival, presented by Afro Pride, promises to be bigger and better than ever before.

Set to take place from May 23rd to 27th, Pridechilla aims to provide a secure, diverse, and inclusive platform for the Black & Afrocentric LGBTQ+ community, as well as individuals from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds in South Florida.

The inception of Pridechilla occurred in 2021 during Memorial Day weekend, but unforeseen circumstances such as COVID outbreaks in 2022 and Monkeypox in 2023 led to a temporary hiatus. However, this year, the festival is back with a renewed vigor, aiming to address longstanding issues that have marginalized LGBTQ+ artists. These issues include limited airplay, restricted exposure, unequal treatment compared to their heterosexual counterparts, and the challenges of coming out in the music industry.

With a lineup of events ranging from concerts to summits, Pridechilla will honor Mental Health Awareness Month with a series of celebrations designed to showcase the best in the community.

"At Afro Pride, we recognize and validate your experiences, committed to ensuring that your voices are not only heard but celebrated, and your talent is acknowledged," Damon Jones, CEO of Afro Pride Federation Inc. exclusively tells Gaye Magazine.

"We look forward to working with you to help strengthen the community together, through celebrating us as one! Together we will make a positive impact and a difference in South Florida and beyond."

The festival will kick off with the Afro Pride Arrival Networking Mixer on May 23rd at Rivertail in Ft. Lauderdale, followed by the Cypher Showdown and Meltdown Miami Pridechilla Concert on May 24th at locations to be announced.

On May 25th, attendees can participate in the Pridechilla Summit and cap off the weekend with the Evolution Ball, starting with a charity skate + roll bounce at the AARLC center.

In addition to music and entertainment, Pridechilla will feature a Health Fair, Expo with diverse vendors and food trucks, multiple zones celebrating LGBTQ art, the lesbian community, and trans siblings, as well as a kid’s area for family-friendly fun and games.

Pridechilla Summit & Music Festival 2024 promises to be an unforgettable experience, celebrating the richness and diversity of the LGBTQ+ community while fostering unity and support for all. Join us in Miami from May 23rd to 27th for a weekend of celebration, empowerment, and solidarity.
