Gay Travel: Florida's Manatee County to Celebrate Pride for the First Time This Month
This month marks a historic first for Manatee County. The first-ever LGBT Pride Festival will be held at the Bradenton Riverwalk on Saturday, March 22. The effort, which runs from noon to 4 p.m., is organized by the Prism Youth Initiative and its executive director, Shannon Summers.

Manatee Pride hopes to accomplish two things in its inaugural year. It aims to bring the pro-LGBT community together to promote awareness and tolerance regarding LGBT issues, and identify possible board members and mentors for Prism members for the Manatee County Human Rights Ordinance Committee.

"Manatee County needs Pride to show our youth that they are not alone and there is a community for them to be a part of," Summers said, who added that she expects approximately 1,000 people on March 22.
