PAMM Pride Night & Screening: “Moonlight”

On Thursday, April 6, 2017, over 2,600 guests joined PAMM for a pride celebration, as part of PAMM’s Free Community Night.

The night kicked off with a live set by Phaxas, as guests danced and enjoyed pride-themed cocktails on the waterfront terrace. Afterwards, queens Noel Leon and Tiffany Fantasia captivated the crowd with their renditions of “I’m Every Woman” and “I Will Survive, respectively. Throughout the night, the PAMM building was lit up in rainbow colors as part of Pride Lights the Night, a tribute to PULSE.

After the celebration on the terrace, guests took their seats on the PAMM beach in anticipation of the free “Moonlight” screening. The film was introduced by PAMM Director Franklin Sirmans and Co-Producer Andrew Hevia, and was followed by a Q&A with cast members Tanisha Cidel, Patrick Decile and Sharif Earp, moderated by Hevia. Hevia began the Q&A by sharing how important it was for Director Barry Jenkins to have the first voice in the film be a “Miami voice,” which ultimately became Shariff Earp. The cast then spoke on their characters, the significance of basing the story in Miami, and the importance of art in the community.
