Last week Out South Florida released its first ever Out & Proud issue – a list of local LGBTQ individuals.

More than 50 people were chosen – some for their activism; some of their leadership; some for their business acumen and others for their involvement in the LGBTQ community.

“These folks are making a difference in our community and/or their respective professional fields,” said Publisher Jason Parsley. “They’re having an impact. We’re delighted to share them with all of our readers.”

Profiles of the honorees are on stands now in OutSFL’s first high glossy magazine.

Each person has a story in the magazine. The many writers who worked to put this together include Denise Royal, Kim Swan, John McDonald, John Hayden, Mary Rasura, Amancio Paradela, Sean Conklin, Deon Jefferson, JW Arnold and Jesse Monteagudo.

“This will be an annual list,” Parsley said. “We’re already looking forward to next year, when we chose 50 more out and proud LGBTQ members.”

Nominations are already open and will be open through early 2024.
