In 2018, after years of working with professional sports organizations in New England, Boston Pride inaugurated its newest program, Pride Sports. Meant to build partnerships with athletes and the teams they are a part of, Pride Sports will provide visibility to an area of life that continues to be the locus of homophobia, transphobia and biphobia. Through sports and advocacy, we hope to foster change and to bring equality and diversity to the world of athletics.
This year, Pride Sports includes three major events: the sixth annual Pride Night @ Fenway Park, the second annual Pride Night @ The Revolution, and the promotion of Gay Games X (Paris 2018) during Boston Pride Week.
