Progressive Pride Street Mural, St Pete Florida

Progressive Pride Street Mural, St Pete Florida This is a community-funded project. The community donated 100% of the funds to cover the installation and its maintenance for years to come. Pete shine." St.

Progressive Rainbow Street Mural, highlighting the original St Pete gayborhood and the birthplace of St Pete Pride in 2003. 25th Street & Central Avenue in the Grand Central District, Saint Petersburg, Florida Managed by the City of St Pete LGBTQ+ Liaison and working with St Pete Pride, we raised over $10,690.00. The Artist who is overseeing the installation and design process is Andrea Pawlisz of

The Fresh Art Studio. She is a local Le***an artist who has been in the community for a very long time and is well-known in the arts community. She was eager to assist in the design and oversee the installation. She will also be using local LGBTQ artists to facilitate the installation, and local LGBTQ-owned businesses will assist in the prep work on the intersection. It is vital that we recognize the LGBTQ community and the Grand Central District for their contributions to making our city a diverse and welcoming community. But we cannot do that without recognizing intersections within the LGBTQ+ community honoring LGBTQ+ people of color–whose activism inspired the very first Pride—and different gender identities. The Grand Central District was the birthplace of St Pete Pride and the original Gayborhood in St Pete. Having a pride street mural at 25th Street and Central Ave. anchors its history and celebrates the vision that in St. Pete, we recognize our differences, what we look like, whom we pray to, and whom we love…that is what makes our country great. That’s what makes St. Pete is a place where diversity and differences are celebrated and embraced. The LGBTQ+ community makes an enormous contribution to life in our city, and it is crucial for us to reflect the rich diversity of that community. I would like to think that recent events the world has faced have allowed for a refocusing of our attention on the issues affecting those most vulnerable. Therefore, the use of progressive colors, hopefully, means increased awareness of intersecting forms of oppression and the need for intersectional inclusion. Movements are benefiting from this, for example, the Black Lives Matter movement, and so, of course, there has been cross-pollination to the LGBTQ+ movement where finally, q***r, trans people of color (QTPOC) and our issues are being recognized. The meaning behind the street mural design is a perfect encapsulation of where the LGBTQ community stands. We need actions of solidarity, and they must outmatch virtue signaling. As we see a rise in the prominence of racist and transphobic rhetoric in the U.S., awareness must lead to positive change.

I'm incredibly honored to have served in the role of LGBTQ liaison for the last 6 years. Some of my proudest moments and accomplishments have been done in this role while working to advocate for the LGBTQ+ community. While I have also served as the Director of the St. Pete Service Center for the last 2 1/2 years, that role has expanded. So, I look forward to working with Eric Vaughan and continuing to advocate for all citizens of this great city.

We want to help celebrate those spaces of belonging and make them easier to find. One way to do this is with small businesses, which are an important part of any community. Business owners can mark their businesses as “LGBTQ-friendly” and as a “Transgender Safe Space” on their Google listing to let customers know they’re always welcome.

Subject: Important Update: Postponement of Come OUT ST Pete Family Day/Chili Cook-off

Dear Community Members,
We hope this message finds you well. It is with a heavy heart that we announce the postponement of the Come OUT ST Pete Family Day/Chili Cook-off originally scheduled for October 14, 2024. After careful consideration, we've made this difficult decision based on several factors that promise to impact the success and enjoyment of our event.

Firstly, the lower than expected participation in the Chili Cook-off means we wouldn't be able to provide the vibrant competition and diverse tasting experience that we know our community loves and deserves.

Additionally, with potential uncooperative weather on the horizon and limited shelter available, we prioritize the comfort and safety of our attendees, vendors, and participants. Holding an event under such conditions wouldn't reflect the high standards we set for our community gatherings.

Most importantly, we are committed to ensuring that the Come OUT ST Pete Family Day/Chili Cook-off is the BEST event it can possibly be. This means providing an environment that is not only safe and comfortable but also fun, competitive, and representative of the wonderful community spirit we share.

While we do not have a new date set as of yet, please rest assured that we are working diligently to reschedule and will inform everyone of the new date as soon as it is confirmed. For our valued vendors who have registered for booths, your registration will automatically be transferred to the new event date.

We understand that changes like this can be inconvenient, and we sincerely apologize for any disruption this may cause. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your registration, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at [email protected]. Our team is here to assist you in any way we can.

Thank you for your understanding, support, and flexibility. Our community is strong, vibrant, and resilient, and we know that with a little more time, we can host an event that truly reflects the spirit of Come OUT ST Pete.

Stay safe, stay hopeful, and please keep an eye out for further updates!

Warm regards,
Come OUT ST Pete Organizing Committee
