MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – Singer Gloria Estefan served as the grand marshal of the annual Miami Beach Gay Pride parade that took place on April 13.
“It’s a wonderful way to support the community,” she told Steve Rothaus of the Miami Herald.
The singer whose family fled to Florida when she was a young child after the Cuban Revolution brought Fidel Castro to power also discussed her support of marriage rights for same-sex couples with the Miami Herald.
“I always said that I thought everyone should be able to legally bind themselves, emotionally and religious if so be it if they want to their significant other,” Estefan told Rothaus. “That’s a human right, it’s a civil rights and I’m happy to support that.”
