Message to our Community

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

Publication of the Stronger Together Rally Value Statement

The planning committee for the Stronger Together Rally is proud to announce the following Value Statement.

Stronger Together Rally

Value Statement

We hold the Boston Stronger Together Rally in solidarity with the “Equality March for Unity & Pride” and partner rallies across the country.

Our intent is to center and amplify the voices of those among us who have been historically silenced and oppressed.

Now, more than ever, it is important to stand together when so many marginalized communities,
including transgender people, Black folks, Latinx folks, and all communities of color, undocumented people, indigenous people, and Muslims are under attack and hard-won rights are being assaulted.

We believe that our liberation is bound together, and that our resiliency and rootedness in our own experiences, histories and cultures increase our capacity to deconstruct the institutional and cultural structures of oppression that marginalize and divide us.

​Boys in the Street #Pride​

Since 2015 the Boston Pride Guide has made a tradition of gracing the cover of our annual magazine with artwork created by members of Greater Boston’s artistic community.

In the face of all the negativity and hate that queer individuals – and especially those living at the intersectional margins of our society – are experiencing in the current political climate,​ for 2017​’s volume we sought an image that would boldly reaffirm that most fundamental of truths: love is love. To realize such an image, we enlisted the creative talents of award-winning Cambridge-based illustrator, filmmaker, and visual journalist Louisa Bertman.

At this year’s Pride Guide Release Party, we also screened a moving animated film that Louisa Bertman made as an accompaniment to Greg Holden’s​ song​ “Boys in the Street”, since its theme gets to the heart of Pride and expounds on the significance of this year’s cover: that public displays of queer love, in all their diversity and beauty, are powerful, even political.

The film resonated deeply with many of our attendees, who​​ ​approached us​ at the conclusion of the evening’s program​ ​to ask that we make the film available on our website for wider viewing. ​In response to these requests, please find the film below.
