Boston Pride statement on the Orlando massacre

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.

Today’s must read: “Nonbinary – Life outside the trans umbrella”

Nonbinary - Life outside the trans umbrella

In honor of the 2016 Boston Dyke March, we put today’s spotlight on former Dyke March organizer Jo Trigilio’s Boston Pride Guide article entitled “Nonbinary – Life outside the trans umbrella.” This piece provides insights and testimonies from individuals who do not identify their gender as male or female. We encourage you to read this article and learn more about the experiences of our fellow community members who identify as genderqueer, pangender, agender, or genderfluid.
