Today’s Boston Pride Guide spotlight is on Earnest Offley and his testimony “Coming Out and Around,” which invites the reader to understand the experience of a gay black man coming out to his family and to his community.
Mayor Walsh and Boston Pride invite you to attend a vigil in memory of the victims of the Orlando massacre. Join us in solidarity with the families of those who lost their lives for simply being out and proud.
Vigil for Orlando Victims
Watch here the moment of silence held at the Back Bay Block Party on St James Avenue:
Boston Pride extends our sympathies to the victims and families of the tragic Orlando nightclub massacre and we stand in unison with the LGBT community of Orlando to condemn this vicious act. Today, at 4 p.m. Boston Pride will hold a moment of silence at the Back Bay Block Party on St. James Avenue and at the Jamaica Plain Block Party on Perkins Street in memory of the victims. Boston Pride is working closely with Boston Police Department to ensure the safety and security of all the patrons of the block parties, which are annual events to celebrate Pride Week.
As we celebrate our community today at the block parties, today’s spotlight reminds us that the fight for global equality is still on. We invite you to discover Daniel Headstrong’s account of LGBT experiences in Indonesia and Southeast Asia, in his article “CONQuering Hate” in the 2016 Boston Pride Guide.
