From a regal line of princesses to foodie-oriented rats to Goofy (whatever he is), Disney has long been a cultural touchstone for the LGBTQ community. For a century, the House of Mouse has given us underdogs to root for and a blueprint for standing up to villains.
And through it all, it’s provided the soundtrack to people’s lives.
Disney’s music will be celebrated along Wilton Drive on July 28 at 7 p.m., for a new event called “One Magical Drive.” WMBA (Wilton Manors Business Association) is hosting the event on NE 7th Ave., between Shoppes of Wilton Manors/Alibi Plaza and the Italian American Civic League building.
The Little Mermen, an NYC based choral group of Disney diehards, will lead the celebration of music. Their repertoire spans from the 1937 classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to 2021’s Encanto. Singing along, while not mandatory, is highly encouraged.
WMBA is a strong community partner, but usually works behind the scenes helping local businesses network and be all they can be. WMBA President Gary Van Horn said this is an opportunity to serve the community directly.
“We want to have a family friendly event that the entire community can enjoy. The Little Mermen are a great group and there will be songs for members of every Disney generation to enjoy.”
