Wilton Manors Hosts Stonewall Pride Parade and Street Festival 

Sponsorship, volunteer, and advertisement opportunities are open to corporations, community groups and individuals.

The City of Wilton Manors is preparing to host an inclusive event celebrating the 54th anniversary of the historic 1969 Stonewall Riots. The Stonewall Pride Parade and Street Festival festivities will begin with a street festival on June 17 at 3 p.m., followed by a twilight parade at 7 p.m. The event is open for all residents, visitors, businesses and nonprofits to show their support for the LGBTQ+ community both locally and globally. 

“I’m proud that Wilton Manors is a place that welcomes everyone and hope friends and neighbors both near and far will join us to celebrate Pride at our annual Stonewall Pride Parade and Street Festival,” Mayor Scott Newton says.

General admission tickets are available online through June 16 for $8 per person and include festival entry at unique pre-paid lines at main entrances, access to the street festival featuring more than 50 local vendors, performances on six stages and entry to the parade. Day of general admission tickets are $10 per person and may be purchased at the main entrances. VIP packages, including air-conditioned tents and exclusive premium lounge experiences, are also available for purchase. Visit stonewallpride.lgbt to buy tickets.

“Over the years, this event has grown from a locally attended parade to an international festival that brings approximately 50,000 people from all over the state, country, and globe together to celebrate Pride,” Stonewall and WMEG CEO Jeffrey Sterling says. “We wouldn’t be able to produce an event of this magnitude without the support of our community and sponsors, and I am so thankful for their generosity.”

Sponsorship, volunteer, and advertisement opportunities are available on a first-come, first-served basis, with discounts available for early registration. Save your spot by visiting stonewallpride.lgbt or by emailing stonewall@wmeg.org.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
