Boston Pride

NEWSLETTER - Vol. 4 No. 5
Red and Yellow and Pink and GREEN!

Boston Pride is putting on the green this Earth Day! After meeting a super-enthusiastic response from the community—and being successful at significantly reducing our waste and carbon footprint in 2008, Boston Pride’s Green Initiative is back in 2009!

Our "Recycle, Reduce, Reuse" effort will be implemented again at all events and in our business practices including recycling at the Festival, Parade and Block Parties. We will be reducing the use of paper and one-use items; promoting the use of public transportation, car-sharing and bikes; and reusing as many resources year-to-year as possible, including banners, signs and decorations. Learn more and join us at BostonPride.org/green.

Let’s Go to the Movies!

Boston Pride is proud to be a co-presenter of the 25th annual Boston LGBT Film Festival May 6 - 17. The festival includes a dynamic, international roster of films exploring gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender experience and culture.

Learn more and purchase tickets at www.bostonlgbtfilmfest.org.

Boston Pride would like to extend a warm thank-you to the MFA’s Amanda Johnston for all of her hard work in "transforming" our community.

Rhinestones and Sequins and Glitter, Oh My!

Pssst…. Mark your calendars now all you gorgeous Kings and Queens of Boston… Boston Pride is planning an amazing event just for you. The very first, very glittery, very fancy King and Queen of Boston Pride 2009 Pageant! I know. We’re pretty excited too. Auditions will be May 28 with the final winners chosen June 11 at 7 p.m. at the Estate. Look for details soon on BostonPride.org/pageant.

The Boston Pride Festival is going into its 39th year and every year gets better. Last year we had over 100,000 people in attendance of all ages and backgrounds. The festival is an amazing opportunity to promote your business as well as to support the LGBT community. Rates have lowered this year and the deadline before the late fee kicks in is quickly approaching. We look forward to seeing you at Boston Pride! Late fees begin May 15.

Trans-forming our Community

Community is the heart of Pride. Community gives us hope that we can live our lives openly as who we are--transgender, lesbian, gay, bisexual and allied. Pride is all of us, standing together as one community. Come celebrate with us. www.BostonPride.org.

Pride Meetings

The Boston Pride Committee meets on Tuesdays at 6:30pm in the Wainwright Bank Community Room, 155 Dartmouth Street in Boston (next to Back Bay T Station). Meetings are open to anyone and we welcome your participation.
