As we celebrate the Fourth of July, let’s remember that true freedom includes everyone. Recently, at the Light up Melbourne with Pride🏳️‍🌈 event, we were honored to stand in solidarity with veterans who have fought for our nation.

Pride equals freedom. It’s about the right to live authentically and openly. This Fourth of July, let's commit to ensuring freedom and equality for all.

As I watch Yankee Doodle Dandy—my 4th of July tradition—I’m reminded that James Cagney’s first job in show business was performing drag in Vaudeville!

Liberty and justice for ALL 🇺🇸🏳️‍🌈

Wishing everyone a safe Fourth of July! Never forget: The Declaration of Independence was written by men in wigs, heels & tights. So go 'fourth' and be fabulous! #LifeLibertyPursuitOfHappiness ... See MoreSee Less

🇺🇸💙👊

Last night, nearly 200 people gathered to transform the Melbourne Causeway into a vibrant rainbow, a symbol of resilience and solidarity. (Organizers: Light up Melbourne with Pride🏳️‍🌈)

This event was more than a celebration; it was a defiant stand for freedom in the face of ongoing challenges.

As we mark 55 years since the Stonewall uprising, we continue our fight for equality in the deep South.

Looking back, we remember Space Coast Pride’s humble beginnings: what began as a small picnic in the park 17 years ago has grown into one of the largest attended festivals in downtown Melbourne. We have come so far as a community!

We know our journey is far from over. But together, we stand strong, showing that our light will not be extinguished. Last night proved that love and unity will always prevail.

Don’t listen to the internet trolls or that nagging voice in your head — remember — you are loved! People care for you! And you are not alone!

I think they should install lights along the causeway permanently. It looks so amazing can you imagine all the way from beginning to end on both sides? That's what I like about my hometown Miami. They put lights overpasses and causeways. The City of Melbourne needs to catch up. Great job everyone!

Beautiful!! Happy Pride Space Coast Pride 👏🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️❤️

A "WELL DONE!" to the organizers and participants! It was a lovely sight to see!
