​Boys in the Street #Pride​

Since 2015 the Boston Pride Guide has made a tradition of gracing the cover of our annual magazine with artwork created by members of Greater Boston’s artistic community.

In the face of all the negativity and hate that queer individuals – and especially those living at the intersectional margins of our society – are experiencing in the current political climate,​ for 2017​’s volume we sought an image that would boldly reaffirm that most fundamental of truths: love is love. To realize such an image, we enlisted the creative talents of award-winning Cambridge-based illustrator, filmmaker, and visual journalist Louisa Bertman.

At this year’s Pride Guide Release Party, we also screened a moving animated film that Louisa Bertman made as an accompaniment to Greg Holden’s​ song​ “Boys in the Street”, since its theme gets to the heart of Pride and expounds on the significance of this year’s cover: that public displays of queer love, in all their diversity and beauty, are powerful, even political.

The film resonated deeply with many of our attendees, who​​ ​approached us​ at the conclusion of the evening’s program​ ​to ask that we make the film available on our website for wider viewing. ​In response to these requests, please find the film below.
