Miami Beach has long been considered one of the premier social destinations and one of the nation’s most prominent LGBTQ communities. One of the annual events that best celebrates the progressive and inclusive mindset of the city is the Winter Party on South Beach. The festival, which has been running for 20 years strong, is providing plenty to look forward to once more in 2015.
