On March 20th, on the steps of City Hall, Mayor Pam Triolo and the Lake Worth City Commission raised the gay pride flag and proclaims March as LGBT Month in the City of Lake Worth. Over 40 Compass HOPE youth group members were present and excited to hear our elected officials reaffirm their commitment to all of this great city’s residents.


    Pridefest of Lake Worth and the Palm beaches attracts more than 20,000 attendees annually throughout South Florida and the Treasure Coast. Since 1992, PrideFest has served as Palm Beach County’s largest gay & lesbian visibility event. The festival exemplifies the strength and growth of the gay & lesbian community by highlighting more than 140 businesses that stand by our community and welcome our business. The event features a parade, live performances and entertainment for all ages.

More importantly, PrideFest emphasizes the importance of diversity in our community, making it stronger and more accepting of all individuals and their contributions to society. Without a doubt, PrideFest exists as an important component of Compass’ efforts to create equal opportunity and a safe place to live and allows for more effective local advocacy.

The event, which was originally held at the Armory Arts Center in West Palm Beach, has now grown from a small gathering to one of the largest festivals in South Florida.

Among many attendees, local elected and appointed representatives including the mayors and commissioners of the city of West Palm Beach and the city of Lake Worth, have attended annually and shown their support for the event. Each year, the mayor of Lake Worth raises the Pride flag with Compass’ Chief Executive Officer at City Hall during the week of the festival.
