Diversity and Inclusion Reign Supreme

Greater Fort Lauderdale is home to hundreds of gay-owned and operated businesses, along with one of the largest concentrations of LGBT+  households in the country. We’re home to one of the largest Pride Centers in the country, the world's first AIDS museum, the global headquarters of the International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association and the Stonewall Museum, one of the only permanent spaces in the U.S. devoted to exhibitions relating to LGBT+ history and culture.

Global Advocacy

This is an open embrace that extends far beyond the LGBT+ community. More than 58 percent of the local population are minorities and 32 percent were born in more than 100 countries. Approximately 79 percent of foreign-born residents are from Latin America, including large communities of immigrants from Cuba, Brazil and Colombia. With this melting pot of cultures, Broward County is the second most diverse county in the United States.

CONSERVATION PROGRAMS IN PLACE

Sea turtle in the ocean

Greater Fort Lauderdale is committed to hosting this event with minimal environmental impact. Energy and water conservation, along with waste recycling programs will be enacted throughout. Additionally, there are many efforts underway to safeguard the sea turtle population that will be nesting on our beaches during this time, including beach clean ups, securing of nesting sites and reduced artificial lighting near the shoreline.

Nearly 90 percent of turtle nesting in the U.S. occurs in Florida, with a large concentration occurring on the beaches of Greater Fort Lauderdale. Pride of the Americas 2020 has adopted the sea turtle as a fitting and informal mascot, commemorating this momentous occasion with one of Mother Nature’s most beloved creatures.

While in town, you will have opportunities to explore our unique ecosystems and participate in wildlife and nature conservation programs on the beach and in the Everglades.
