Gerald S. Arroyo-Prada, better known for his onstage persona, Ariel Rimm. A South Florida DRAG ICON, premiere entertainer, actor, singer and emcee. Arroyo-Prada started his drag career at the “The Lounge” on Clematis Street (downtown - West Palm Beach, FL.) In the early 2000’s. Continuing to build his career, a graduate with a BA in Theater and proud alumni of Florida Atlantic University, he has co-founded, nurtured and produced the Florida Atlantic University Drag Show for the past 11yrs. This show is one of the campuses and community’s largest and most attended events of the year. A major staple in the South Florida community, Arroyo-Prada is the host of Garage Queens, with non-profit theater, Arts Garage, in Delray Beach, FL. He’s also heavily involved with COMPASS LGBTQ Community Center, which provides a safe space for LGBTQ youth in Palm Beach County with social support and community service. Lastly, as part of the staff of the Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb, P.A. (south FL personal injury attorney’s) Arroyo-Prada has used his platform with his supportive employer to amplify queer voices and celebrate uniquely driven individuals with goals and dreams, much like “LOCG” has done for him. Arroyo-Prada lives life with two mantras: It’s never IMPOSSIBLE – it’s ALWAYS IM POSSIBLE & ALWAYS believe in: Living the Dream.
