City Officials In Hollywood Raise Progress Pride Flag

Happy Pride! As you know, June is Pride month and South Florida is celebrating in many ways. City officials in Hollywood raised the progress pride flag in front of City Hall yesterday (Wednesday June 2nd) to kick off their annual Pride Month events.

According to NBC 6, members of the city's LGBTQ+ council were on hand for the event to let residents and visitors know the city is filled with allies.

"It was our founders' vision, and what we do today, to move the city forward," said Todd Delmay, president of the council. "For many people, they live at the intersection of more than one identity. They may be LGBTQ, Black or Brown, Asian or Jewish. It’s important we recognize that and we are all one community."

Hollywood is the first city in South Florida to raise the progress pride flag over the City Hall building.
