Last year’s festival and parade gathered over 200,000 people, according to Come Out With Pride. This year people gathered for a new addition to the yearly tradition, the Trans Rally and the Trans March put on by Trans Pride, which is back for their second year.

These creatives were given the opportunity to create something entirely their own– to celebrate their own individuality. Anything from film to design to music to visual fields were fair game to mesh with the custom Victoria’s Secret designs that were presented to them.

UCF student recovers after recent shark attack

A normal summer surfing session at New Smyrna Beach turned into something right out of a nightmare just as Chris Pospisil was getting ready to leave.
