Miami Beach Gay Pride is handing its grand marshaling duties over to an intern.

Ross the Intern to be exact.

The Miami Herald is reporting Ross Mathews — best known for flamboyant, campy bits on the “Tonight Show” — is one of four marshals for the 2017 Miami Beach Gay Pride parade. NBC 6 South Florida is also reporting Mathews is working with Miami Beach Pride this year.

The annual event, in its ninth year, is scheduled for April 7 to 9. The parade on Ocean Drive is set for Sunday, April 9.

Mathews is not the only marshal of note, the Herald reports. Three other individuals: “Uncle” Johnny Pool and Liebe and Seth Gadinsky are also serving as parade marshals, according to the Herald.

The 37-year-old Mathews has appeared on numerous television shows, ranging from “Celebrity Fit Club” to “RuPaul’s Drag Race” to “Chelsea Lately.” He recently was the target of an insult from former Brietbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos.

In his resignation speech, Yiannopoulos said he gets letters from parents thanking him for showing that their gay kids “won’t end up like Ross Mathews.”

Mathews responded with a video saying he was “proud to be the antithesis of whatever that guy (Yiannopoulos) is.”

“Whatever he (Yiannopoulos) is not, I want my face on that poster,” Mathews said.

Mathews is designated MBP parade grand marshal. Pool, a bartender from Fire Island, N.Y. and frequent guest on the Elvis Duran radio program, is the parade’s advocate marshal while the Gadinskys are serving as ally marshals.
