Gay8 Festival Welcomes All

Gay8 Festival’s third year was a massive success!
Over 60,000 people came to #LiveYourStoryHere in Little Havana, making #Gay8 the largest Hispanic LGBT Festival in the United States!

From Girl Central and Tertulia to Macho and the Comparsa, we couldn’t have done it without your support.
