MEDIA Coverage of ORGULLO
Celebrate ORGULLO 2020 | South Florida’s first Hispanic LGBT Pride festival
- enters its 10th successful year with In person & Virtual Events...an
International Artists Showcase, ART|DIVA Bus Tours, Music, Writers Salons,
and much more.

Celebrate ORGULLO continues to showcase quality events, artists, performances &
programming to Miami’s first Hispanic LGBT Pride festival. For 2020, we are
celebrating UNITY in DIVERSITY, through Art, Music, Dance, Photography, Film and
Spoken Word.

Proceeds benefit our LGBT Scholarship Fund and year round programming of the
Unity Coalition|Coalicion Unida, Inc.

Unity Coalition|Coalición Unida is a Florida 501(c)3 non-profit whose focus is the
Leadership, Protection & Promotion of Latinx|Hispanic LGBTQ rights (lesbian, gay,
bisexual, transgender, questioning) - The only organization of its kind in South
Florida since 2002.

We are proud to present the Annual Celebrate ORGULLO Festival which highlights,
celebrates and supports the contributions of the Hispanic LGBT community.

ABOUT NATIONAL HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH
The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President
Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to
cover the 30-day period from September 15 through October 15. The day of
September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for
Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and
Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days
on September 16 and September 18, respectively.
Celebrate ORGULLO 2020 | El primer festival hispano LGBT Pride del sur
de la Florida: entra en su decimo año exitoso, con eventos en persona e
virtuales... excibiciones de arte y artistas, Viajes en omnibus a estudios de
artistas,  musica y literatura, y mucho mas.

Celebrate ORGULLO continúa exhibiendo eventos de calidad, artistas, actuaciones y
programación en el primer festival hispano de Orgullo LGBT de Miami. Para el 2020,
estamos honrando la UNIDAD EN DIVERSIDAD, a través de Arte,
Música, Danza, Fotografía, el Cine y la Palabra Hablada.

Unity Coalition|Coalicion Unida es una organisacion sin fines de lucro de la Florida, con
enfoque en el Liderazgo, protección y promocion de los derechos civiles de la comunidad
latinx|hispanx LGBTQ (lesbianas, gay, bisexual, transgénero, cuestionando)
en el sur de la Florida desde el 2002.

Somos orgullosos de presentar el
Festival Celebrate ORGULLO, que celebra,
presenta  y respalda las contribuciones de la comunidad hispana LGBT.


SOBRE EL MES DE LA HERENCIA HISPANA
La observación se inició en 1968 como la Semana de la Herencia Hispana durante la
presidencia de Lyndon Johnson y fue ampliado por el presidente Ronald Reagan en
1988 para cubrir un período de 30 días a partir del 15 de Septiembre hasta el 15 de
Octubre. El día 15 de Septiembre es importante porque es el aniversario de la
independencia de varios países de América Latina como Costa Rica, El Salvador,
Guatemala, Honduras y Nicaragua. Además, México y Chile celebran su independencia
el 16 y 18 de Septiembre, respectivamente.
Artists, Performers, Illusionists, DIV@S & Celebrities create
one-of-a-kind DIVA MASKS, Inspired by the unimaginable COVID-19
lock down, and life as we knew it - changed forever.

Fantasy Masks will be on Exhibit during ORGULLO, then be auctioned
off, with profits going to fund Unity Coalition|Coalición Unida's year
round Programming & Servicse and Micro Giving Fund.

ARTISTS, CELEBRITIES and DIV@S...
Make your mask, express your creative talent, and share your
response to the current health and environmental crises.

EXPRESS HOW YOU FEEL about COVID-19 through a circular
economy approach – make your mask from waste materials.

CAUTION PLEASE:
DON'T use a real protective mask!
During this pandemic they are reserved for frontline workers.

DON'T use a used one either because it still poses a risk of
contamination. Make your own mask (paper, cardboard, fabric,
recycled materials...).
COLLABORATION with Art of Change 21

Since its creation in Paris in 2014 in the perspective of COP21, Art of Change 21
highlights the role of artists and creativity as accelerators of the ecological
transition and acts on an international scale.

UC|CU’s Celebrate ORGULLO Festival is proudly partnering with Art of Change 21.

Since 2015, Maskbook project has taken global creative action on the link between
health and the environment, using the protective mask as a symbol.

After air pollution, the Covid-19 pandemic is exposing this link on an
unprecedented scale and galvanizing us into action.

Art of Change 21 launched the COVID-19 Maskbook campaign to collectively
create the largest international gallery of masked, creative and committed
engaged portraits on the theme of COVID-19.

International, collective work of art, Maskbook raises awareness about the link
between health, air pollution and climate change, using the mask as a symbol.
