Boston Pride announced today that the second annual Pride Night at Fenway Park will take place as part of 2014 Pride Week festivities. Bostonâ€™s LGBT community will be recognized at the Boston Red Sox vs. Cleveland Indians baseball game at Fenway Park on Thursday, June 12th at 7:10p.m.
â€œFor the second year in a row, Boston Pride is delighted to be working with the Boston Red Sox on Pride Night at Fenway Park,â€ said Boston Pride President, Sylvain Bruni. â€œWe had a great inaugural event last year and we hope that this continues as a Boston Pride Week tradition.â€
In 2013, the addition of Pride Night at Fenway Park was the first time that a major league sports team had hosted a Pride Night.
â€œWe had more than 400 attend Pride Night at Fenway Park last year and it was a great night for the LGBT community. We truly appreciate the support from the Boston Red Sox, a strong ally to the LGBT community,â€ Bruni said.
