The message at Sunday’s Palm Beach Pride celebration in Lake Worth was clear: “We say gay!”

The festival, hosted by the Compass LGBTQ Community Center, started with a parade up Lake Avenue, ending at Bryant Park. There, several local and state officials spoke about gay and transgender rights in Florida and then Palm Beach County Clerk of Court Joseph Abruzzo officiated a mass wedding of 30 couples.

“It is truly a pleasure for me to — you know what, it is awesome! It is awesome to be here! It’s truly a pleasure for me and the entire clerk team to be part of this event,” Abruzzo told a crowd of several thousand at the wedding ceremony. “Now it’s time to move into the reason we’re all here — an exchange of vows and celebration of these wonderful couples.”

Abruzzo asked the couples if they’d love and cherish each other and bring each other joy as long as they live. He then pronounced the 30 couples legally married.

After their first kisses as married couples, the crowd erupted in cheers and confetti rained down on stage area of the park.
