Palm Beach Pride, first hosted by Compass LGBTQ+ Community Center in 1992, and returned this year with new experiences, one of them being a mass wedding ceremony!
The wedding and vow renewal ceremony took place on Sunday, March 27, 2022 after the Palm Beach Pride Parade concluded. Compass’ Executive Director, Julie Seaver and her partner, Penny Johnson, joined the many couples getting married that day.
In addition to the wedding ceremony, Palm Beach Pride featured both fan favorites and new elements. The always popular Youth Village expanded to include more offerings during this family and pet-friendly event.
The Pride Parade, with the theme of “Proud Together”, started at 11am on Sunday and traveled down Lake Ave in Downtown Lake Worth Beach into Bryant Park, kicking off the second day of Pride festivities.
Miss Florida FI at Large, Velvet Lenore, this year’s Grand Marshal was recognized for her tireless efforts to promote safe spaces for the community’s youth and serving as a beacon of hope for people everywhere who are looking to live their authentic lives. Velvet was joined by local legends Melissa St. John, Rianna Petrone, and Ariel Rimm as this year’s “Mistresses of Ceremonies”.
