The 17th Annual Massachusetts Youth Pride is only 2 WEEKS AWAY, so it’s time to get excited!

On Saturday, May 14, thousands of GLBTQ and Allied Youthwill gather at the Boston Common Parkman Bandstand to celebrate Massachusetts Youth Pride under the theme: “We Are Making It Better!”  The Rally begins at 11am, the Parade kicksoff at 12pm, and the Entertainment begins at 1pm.

Meet some new friends, catch up with old!!! Just hang out and celebrate your GLBTQ Pride!!!

This year’s headliner you may remember from Season 2 of RuPaul’s Drag Race: The talented Jessica Wild will wow the crowd! Jessica will be joined by other fantastic performers and emcees Raquel Blake and Gay Jim from KISS 108’s Matty in the Morning show!

The MA Youth Pride Committee would also like to announce that City Councilor At-Large Felix G. Arroyo will be the 2011 Youth Pride Grand Marshal.  Councilor Arroyo is an ideal Grand Marshal for Youth Pride and his presence demonstrates the commitment that drives his work with our city’s youth.

This event is a great opportunity to show your pride in the amazing youth in our community.  Consider marching in the Parade or hosting a table at the Festival to show your support. Deadlines are approaching, so get your applications in!

Once the day’s festivities are over, there’s an OpenMic event followed by the popular and historic BAGLY Prom at City Hall!! Check out for updates.
