Â LGBT Community is #WickedProud to Celebrate Pride Week at Red Sox Game on Friday, June 12th
Boston Pride is happy to announce the third annual Pride Night @ Fenway Park, which will take place as part of the 2015 Boston Pride Week festivities. Bostonâ€™s LGBT community will be recognized at the Boston Red Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays baseball game at Fenway Park on Friday, June 12th at 7:10 p.m. Boston Pride Week 2015 will be held from June 5th through June 14th. This yearâ€™s theme is â€œ45th anniversary – #WickedProud.â€
â€œIt is such a wonderful opportunity for Boston Pride to work with the Boston Red Sox on Pride Night at Fenway Park, especially as we celebrate our 45th anniversary this year,â€ said Boston Pride President, Sylvain Bruni. â€œLast year, more than 500 Pride guests attended, and we hope that the event continues to grow into a Boston Pride Week tradition.â€
In 2013, the addition of Pride Night at Fenway Park was the first time that the Boston Red Sox franchise hosted an official Pride Night event.
â€œThis event has certainly embraced connections for the LGBT community. The Red Sox are very supportive and we are truly appreciate having them as a strong ally to our community,â€ said Boston Pride Board member Marco Torres.
This year, Pride Red Sox hats will be available at Pride Day @ Faneuil Hall on June 6 and at the Pride Festival on June 13 through a partnership with local business Brims4U.
