The racially diverse and gay-friendly community of South Beach, at the tip of Miami Beach, celebrates one of the world's largest gatherings of African-American and Latin Gay Pride, Miami Beach Bruthaz, in mid-July (the dates in 2016 are July 14 to July 18). The four-day event - celebrating its 10th year in 2016 - includes a welcoming party, a Decadence White Party, a Saturday pool party, an outing at clothing-optional Haulover Beach, happy hour gatherings, pulsing parties running into the early hours of each night, and a Sunday Pajama Party.
Miami Beach Bruthaz is working with an official host hotel, the trendy and handily located Dorchester South Beach Hotel and Suites, in the swanky and scenic historical Art Deco district - you can book one of the special weekend packages here. Also visit the Miami Beach Bruthaz passes page in order to buy tickets to key events.
