“Pride is an institution in Boston” – Sen. Elizabeth Warren

Senator Elizabeth Warren

“[The Boston Pride] parade is the tangible demonstration of what happens when we turn away from darkness and division and turn toward our best selves. When we turn toward each other. It shows us what this nation looks like when we are at our best. Inclusive, strong, united, optimistic, and proud.”

Senator Elizabeth Warren

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.
