Boston Pride mourns the loss of a great artist and dear friend, Gilbert Baker, creator of the rainbow Pride flag. Since its conception in 1978, this flag has embodied the diversity and beauty of our community, and our ongoing fight for equal rights. During the Boston Pride Parade on June 10th, as our community continues to march for inclusivity, equality, respect and awareness, we will proudly parade Gilbert’s flag throughout Boston, honoring his legacy and grassroots work in behalf of all LGBTQ people.
