Last year â€“ thanks to the tremendous support of advertisers and members of the LGBTQ and ally communities â€“ for the first time ever Boston Pride was able to produce our own Pride Guide entirely in-house and to offer this pioneering 144-page, full-color, glossy magazine freely as a service to our community. You can check the magazine out here:Â www.bostonpride.org/
We printed 20,000 copies of the 2015 magazine and distributed them to hundreds of locations throughout New England. We also offered a digital version of the Guide that, to date, has been read more than 15,000 times in 68 different countries (that’s more than 1/3 of the world’s countries)! That means that the Guideâ€™sÂ 45+ contributors had their work seen by a diverse international readership, some even residing in countries with environments hostile to LGBTQ people (for example, Jamaica, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and Malaysia).
Building upon last yearâ€™s success,Â weâ€™re #wickedproud to announce that weâ€™ll publish another installment of the Pride Guide for Boston Pride Week 2016. Boston Pride will once again dedicate ourselves to delivering a Guide of the highest quality, which offers not only event-specific information straight from the source, but also unique, community-generated content developed exclusively for the Boston Pride Guide.
Thatâ€™s where you come in: To ensure that our content and contributors reflect the great diversity of our community,Â weâ€™re seeking writers, photographers, and artists from all backgrounds who are willing to donate their talents, and are looking for a unique, highly visible place to showcase issues, stories, and ideas that matter to them.
