Pride Watch: Boston

Official pride events in Boston have underwent much change these past few years. 2023 marked the first, full return of pride festivities in Boston, not just because of COVID, but also because previous organization running pride had stepped down amid controversies. Since then, the new organization in charge of Pride in Boston is Pride for the People.

Boston Pride For The People is excited to announce Pride Month celebration in Boston on June 8th, 2024. The celebration will include a parade, a festival, and more! ​ Boston Pride For The People is a volunteer-led organization that plans activities and events that celebrate the rich diversity, culture, and intersectionality of the LGBTQ+ community. ​ “Boston has a historic legacy of advancing equity and celebrating the LGBTQ+ community. I’m grateful to Boston Pride for The People for their critical work to ensure that we are creating space for joy and inclusivity throughout the year. I look forward to welcoming people from all across the region and country to Boston this June.” -Mayor Michelle Wu
