~Family is not always about a bloodline, but rather a circle of people connected by love, respect and a genuine desire to improve the human condition~

 

Familia de Gladiatores, FGK, actively participates in the local parade circuit with the Gasparilla Krewe community in the greater Tampa Bay area.  The parade season begins in January and runs through April each year and is attended by all full members of the organization and open to the general public.  Participation in the parades is funded by private or corporate sponsors that share the desire to spread the FGK message to the community.  FGK’s participation in the parade scene provides an opportunity to spread their message of hope and recruit dynamic individuals to assist with their cause.

The name, Familia was chosen to identify with the spirit and support of a healthy family bond.  Familia de Gladiatores recognizes that family is not always about a blood line, but rather a circle of people connected by love, respect and a genuine desire to improve the human condition.

Ancient Gladiatores were slaves and other socially marginalized individuals forced to entertain audiences in violent, often barbaric confrontations with other gladiators, wild animals and criminals.

Gladiatores did not live long lives, most dying by the age of 30, and those that fought valiantly and successfully for many years, were awarded a Rudis, a wooden sword symbolizing the gladiator’s newly granted freedom

The wings, also a symbol of freedom, represent one’s desire to rise above challenges, and further, embody hope, enlightenment, guidance and protection from evil. These character traits have often been stolen from a survivor of abuse, but they are characteristics that can be learned and perfected with a commitment to a change in your circumstances and belonging to a strong support group.
