Jonathan Bennett and Jaymes Vaughan have been named the Celebrity Grand Marshals for Miami Beach Pride. Taking place between 15-16 April, next year marks the 15th anniversary of the Pride festival.
Bennett and Vaughan married earlier this year and became the first gay couple to cover The Knot. The former is best known for his iconic role as Aaron Samuels in Mean Girls and for starring in Hallmark’s first-ever holiday film with a leading LGBTQ+ couple, The Holiday Sitter.
As the host of Celebrity Page, co-host of Pridecast and co-owner of OUTbound Travel LGBTQ+, Vaughan has also cultivated a strong presence within queer mainstream media.
In a statement, Bennett said: “Pride holds a near and dear place in Jaymes and I’s heart. “The LGBTQ+ community has come so far over the past 15 years, and we are beyond excited and honored to be named Celebrity Grand Marshals for Miami Beach’s momentous Pride next year. “It will be a great moment to celebrate our journey and where we are today.
