Kissimmee Pride Fest Kicks Off Saturday
Kissimmee hosts its second annual PrideFest this Saturday. The event is a celebration of Osceola County’s diverse LGBTQ communities.
Kissimmee public affairs officer Melissa Zayas-Moreno said the event features live music, entertainment and advocacy and support organizations, like the LGBT+ Center Orlando.
“They’re our advocacy partner, and then again this is something very positive because their plan is to extend their services to the county,” said Zayas-Moreno.
The Center is scheduled to open a second location in Kissimmee at the end of August. Zayas-Moreno said the city proclaimed Saturday June 9th PrideFest Kissimmee day.
“During Tuesday’s city commission meeting a proclamation was given to George Wallace, the executive director of the Center Orlando, proclaiming Saturday June 9th 2018 as PrideFest Kissimmee day,” said Zayas-Moreno.
“And that is to recognize the ongoing contributions of the LGBT community to the city of Kissimmee.”
PrideFest kicks off at noon on Saturday at Kissimmee Lakefront Park.
