Boston Pride is accepting Marshal Nominations for this year’s Pride Parade and Festival, which will be held Saturday, June 9th. Each year, our organization asks the community to nominate three different types of Pride Marshals: Grand Marshal, Honorary Marshal (a title only given posthumously) and Celebrity Marshals. This year our goal is to select Marshals who have a connection to the theme of “Celebrating 30 Years of Worldwide Pride Movement”. Just like every year, we will be using our multi-step nomination process; first asking for nominee submissions from the community, and then selecting a range of nominees from those responses. We will then re-release the narrowed-down lists and let you determine the 2012 Pride Marshals through one last vote. Due to popular demand, we have extended the Pride Marshal submission period until March 23rd.
