Please take the time to visit Boston Pride and learn more about this year’s Marshals.
Why isn’t the performances of the Boston Gay Men’s Chorus ever listed on the pride calendar any more. As a member of this organization for 22 years, we had more recognition in the past. The last several years has had NO mention at all of the chorus’s performances. We have performances onThursday, Friday and Sunday at the John Hancock Conference Center. As an organization that has been instrumental in the community for nearly 30 years, a mere mention of the performances is warranted.
Thanks for your comment.
The Official Boston Pride Week Calendar is not a list of all events happening in the city, but rather details events that are produced BY the Boston Pride Committee itself. We are a 501c(3) non-profit and like other charitable organizations we produce, manage, implement and market our own internal programs, events and activities.
Where there are other events listed that are not primarily owned or operated by Boston Pride, it is because they have entered into a working relationship with us that involves either cross-promotion, Boston Pride being a financial beneficiary, or a combination of both. These events are being produced in conjunction with and/or for Boston Pride.
I have been with Boston Pride for 13 seasons. The way we operate our calendar has changed over the years and I suspect that it could change in the future. We certainly welcome all sorts of partnerships and would be open to forming a relationship with the BGMC for 2012, keeping in mind that most of these collaborations form in the fall, so we can work out all the details and create a positive experience for all.
Be in touch!
