First-In-The-Nation App to Facilitate Official Boston Pride Activities

May 1, 2012 (Boston, Mass.) – Boston Pride announced today that their official Boston Pride App is now available to download from the iTunes App Store. Through the app, developed in partnership between Boston Pride and EDGE Media Network, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users will be able to keep track of festivities during Pride Week as well as all other official Boston Pride events. App users will be able to access information and receive updates on Boston Pride events, upload photos, and connect with other revelers.

“We’re very excited to unveil this first-in-the-nation app for everyone across New England who celebrates Boston Pride Week,” said Linda DeMarco, president of Boston Pride.  “The Boston Pride Committee has always been very forward-thinking in finding ways to celebrate our community’s achievements.  This app is yet another example of the community connecting and coming together during this celebration.”

The app was designed and developed by EDGE Media Network, working with Boston Pride.  Headquartered in Boston, EDGE is the largest network of local Lesbian, Gay Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) news and entertainment portals in the world, serving about 1 million dedicated readers from a variety of metropolitan areas around the United States and beyond.

“At EDGE, we believe that the LGBT community is a diverse, dynamic group of individuals,” said David Foucher, chief executive officer of EDGE.  “Developing this app is another way we achieve the goal of connecting members of the LGBT community together.  We’re pleased to be working with Boston Pride on this project and we look forward to seeing people at Boston Pride Week using this app to enhance their celebration experience.”

The Boston Pride App is immediately available for iPhone users to download free of cost, from the iTunes App Store while the app will be available for iPad and iTouch users to download soon.  A Droid version, for the non-iPhone users, will also follow.
