Dear Community,

We acknowledge that our actions, past and recent, have caused harm to members of our community, particularly in the transgender community. We deeply apologize for using language and for posting content on social media that yielded such harm and pain. The impact of these actions has done members of our community wrong and caused divisiveness within our community. And for that, we are profoundly sorry. As an organization, we vow to be accountable for our mistakes and to our entire community: We will work to make amends, and to rebuild trust with trans* members of our community; we pledge our commitment to ensuring that our actions do not perpetuate such harm or hostility. Boston Pride will continue to engage with individuals and organizations in the trans* community to ensure that all our events are truly and fully inclusive, safe and welcoming of every member of our community.

Sincerely,

The Board of Directors of Boston Pride
