Miami Beach Pride Set For September Return

Miami Beach Pride announced today that they will be one of the first pride parades in the nation to return September 10 – 19, 2021 including the festival and Ocean Drive beach parade. After a year of COVID-19 Pandemic, this is one of America’s first major pride festivals to announce a return to some type of normalcy. The south florida LGBTQ community has been adversely affected in every possible way from the pandemic including our charities, businesses, social life, and our Pride celebrations. Miami Beach Pride, held on world famous LGBTQ mecca South Beach, has traditionally been held in April. With the outbreak of Coronavirus in South Florida in March 2020 the Pride festival for 2020 was cancelled. Few thought the length of shutdown would continue as long as it did and it forced one of America’s best pride festivals to cancel their April 2021 festival.
June is the traditional pride month for pride parades in America and it is very likely many events will continue to cancel or significantly change how they are presented. So today’s breaking news is all the more important as it is likely to be one of LGBTQ America’s first major pride parades to return to the national circuit scene. Miami Beach Pride Executive Director Rich Walczak said on the breaking news announcement “After such a challenging year for so many, we are eager to celebrate again as responsibly as possible and are hard at work on a stellar slate of performances, and programming that represents the beautiful diversity of the LGBTQ+ community. We are coming off a really tough year, but we are optimistic with the vaccine distribution under way, we will be able to provide a safe environment for our attendees.”

Conservatives turn on gay Trump supporter Richard Grenell after pro-trans tweet

The Former Trump administration official Richard Grenell has fallen afoul of the Republican Party’s current anti-transgender bias. Grenell, an avid Donald Trump supporter who served as U.S. ambassador to Germany and acting director of national intelligence under Trump, attempted to tout the experience of a transgender woman who attended the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) last weekend.
Grenell attempted to suggest that it was a trans-inclusive environment. Grenell, as it should not be a surprise to the LGBTQ community was immediately critized to outright attacked by the most loyal of Trump supporters for not towing the anti LGBTQ line. At Queer News Tonight we guest that Mike Pence… oh wait… we mean Richard Grennel didn’t learn his lesson of the results for loyalty to these people.

United Methodist conservatives detail breakaway plans over gay inclusion

Conservative leaders within the United Methodist Church unveiled plans this week to form a new denomination, the Global Methodist Church, with a doctrine that does not recognize same-sex marriage. The move could hasten the long-expected breakup of the UMC over differing approaches to LGBTQ inclusion. For now, the UMC is the largest mainline Protestant church in the U.S. and second only to the Southern Baptist Convention, an evangelical denomination, among all U.S. Protestant churches. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the UMC’s General Conference — at which the schism would be debated — has been postponed for two consecutive years, and is now scheduled to take place in Minneapolis starting in late August of 2022. The Rev. Keith Boyette, a Methodist elder from Virginia who chairs the Global Methodist initiative, said he and his allies do not want to wait that long to formally leave the UMC. They have asked that the topic of schism be added to the tightly limited agenda of a special one-day General Conference to be conducted online May 8.
