Florida's quote of the day
"The reality is that we need the support of our sponsors and our community partners, and we didn’t have it. The city hasn’t been supportive of us this year."
Gay8, a popular LGBTQ street festival free to the public, will not make its return to Little Havana in 2024.
4Ward Miami, a nonprofit that promotes diversity and organizes Gay8, made the decision because it did not receive enough funding from sponsors and the City of Miami, which has provided financial support and services for the festival in previous years, said Aly Ramos, the group’s chairwoman.
Instead, the organization will focus on its annual 4Ward Gala in February. Ramos said it was a difficult decision to cancel the festival, which was scheduled for Feb. 18. She added the city did not tell the organizers why it denied the funds.
The funding issue comes as the city government is embroiled with several legal battles.
