Statement regarding the Trump administrations’ rescinding of protections for trans* students in public schools

Boston – Wednesday, February 22nd – Boston Pride condemns the executive order issued by the Trump administration that rescinds the protection of transgender students in our public schools. While schools should be a safe place for trans* students to learn and grow, many face bullying, harassment and violence. Rescinding these protections not only takes us back, but it also promotes further divisions in our communities.

Massachusetts has been a leader when it comes to promoting rights in the LGBTQ community. Last year, the Commonwealth passed public accommodations legislation that protects the rights of transgender individuals. We urge all public schools to continue standing up for trans* individuals and standing against intolerance. Boston Pride will continue to work in solidarity with our community and trans* advocacy groups to prevent any rollback of our rights.

Statement on the plans for a National Pride March

Boston, MA – Considering that the proposed National Pride March on Washington, DC for June 11 would occur on the same weekend as Boston Pride, we are working diligently to identify the best outcome to ensure our various communities continue to have safe spaces at the local and regional level, while recognizing the larger, national conversation.

To that effect, Boston Pride is currently in discussions with InterPride, the international association of Pride organizers, and the leadership team of Capital Pride DC, which organizes the LGBT Pride celebration in Washington, DC, which are themselves both in direct contact with the individual who proposed a National Pride March.

Because this matter is complex in its logistics and impact, and because it involves a plethora of stakeholders nationwide, we ask for your patience. Boston Pride will publish updates on its website as this process moves forward.
