Boston Pride welcomes the fact that the Allied War Veterans Council has accepted the application of OutVets to march in the 2015 South Boston St. Patrick’s Day parade. It is a demonstration that much progress has been made in the two decades since the Supreme Court rendered its decision allowing the parade to prohibit LGBT groups from marching. There is more work to be done – true equality and acceptance will only come when all LGBT and allied organizations can march openly and proudly. We look forward to members of our community and our allies joining us in June 2015 for our 45th anniversary Pride celebration.
Boston Pride congratulates the winners of the 2014 Parade Awards: DotOut (Best Adaptation of the Theme), State Street Global PRIDE & Friends (Best Float), and BSL Awareness Walks (Best Marching Group)!
This year, Boston Pride will be producing for the first time its own Pride Guide in celebration of its 45th anniversary. The goal is to produce a Guide whose content and contributors reflect the diversity of our community and speak to a wide-ranging readership. You can help Boston Pride accomplish this goal by submitting a story idea and/or volunteering your passion and skills as a writer. We are seeking stories on a variety of themes, among them local issues, home and garden, athletics, hobbies, travel and leisure. For example, are you an LGBT chef at a Boston area restaurant who is willing to submit one of your favorite recipes for our food and dining theme?
If you’re interested in contributing a story related to these or any other theme, please complete the online submission form or contact the Editor-in-Chief, Michael Anthony Fowler at mafowler(at)bostonpride.org. The Editorial team will review all submissions.
