Miami Beach Gay Pride on Thursday sponsored a reception for legacy same-sex couples (together at least 20 years) at Bar 21 off Lincoln Road in South Beach. The couples -- who'll ride in the gay pride day parade -- are role models to younger gays and lesbians, said Cindy Brown, operations director for the festival to be held April 17 on Ocean Drive.
Among the couples at Thursday's party: Bob Truax and Tony Fernandez, who've been partnered for 56 years.
