A pair of LGBTQ headliners drew crowds to the heart of Wilton Manors over the weekend. Pride On the Drive (POTD) was a huge community effort to make sure South Florida had some type of Pride this season after Pride Fort Lauderdale canceled their signature events, a parade, and festival, for 2024.

The long-discussed Wilton Hotel & Pool Club benefitted from a pair of important votes by the Planning & Zoning Board. At their Feb. 12 meeting, they unanimously approved rezoning the plot of land to commercial use (from Wilton Drive Arts & Entertainment District) and received site plan approval.

After months of backlash from one social media post on a personal account, Aqua Foundation for Women is working to get back on track and move past the discussion. They have tentatively set April 10 at R House as the new date for their Aqua Affair fundraiser.

If you’ve been to a city meeting, philanthropic event, or community party in the last few years, you’ve encountered Don D’Arminio and his husband, Marc Martorana. D’Arminio served on Wilton Manors’ Planning & Zoning Board for six years and was elected city commissioner in 2022.

Despite being 33-years-old, David Archuleta is still “finding himself.” While not an easy feat for anyone, his personal journey has been incredibly public. He finished second on season seven of “American Idol” and captured the hearts of teens and tweens who spent Tuesday nights hitting “redial” to vote for their teen idol fave with a sweet smile and amazing voice.
