Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, May 19, 2015.- The Vallarta Pride Organizing Committee had announced in past releases that Lea DeLaria had been appointed as the official Grand Marshal of Vallarta Pride, but it was announced today that for various personal reasons beyond her control she will not be able to participate in the festivities as scheduled.
However, these sudden events have shown once again the UNITY that exits within Vallarta Pride 2015. The Organizing Committee held an internal meeting and is pleased to announce that for the first time Vallarta Pride will have two Grand Marshals leading the gay pride festivities: Andrew Christian and Morgana.
Andrew Christian is the founder and chief designer of Andrew ChristianTM, the internationally renowned brand of underwear, swimwear and sportswear for men based in Hollywood, California.
Morgana is a soprano and pop singer, who has been recognized with several awards due to the power and beauty of her voice. Additionally, she is the star of the documentary “Made in Bangkok” and our guest of honor at the screening today, May 19, 2015 at the Red Room Carpet, as part of the International Film Festival. Morgana is also an UN ambassador for its FREE AND EQUAL campaign. A campaign fighting for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender equality.
Finally, the Vallarta Pride Organizing Committee wants to express its gratitude to the more than 1,000 people who attended the International March Against Homophobia, an event that marked the beginning of the festival scheduled to take place from 17 to May 25, 2015.
