"We are thrilled to have such an incredible lineup of talent this year. The move to North Beach gives Celebrate ORGULLO its own unique signature, amazing vendors, community workshops, more room and better access for our friends across South Florida...and ALBITA - wow! An Emmy Grammy award winning artist - what more can we ask for. Also, this year we are partnering with the Anita Priest Whispering Angels Foundation to offer an LGBT Youth Scholarship as well, so a lot of good is going on for our community. I am looking forward to seeing everyone at ORGULLO on October 5th at Collins & 73rd Street in Miami Beach" - said Herb Sosa, event organizer
