Photos from Boston Pride 2018

A beautiful day to celebrate LGBTQIA identity, people, and pride.

Last weekend Boston Pride held its annual parade festival, walking from Copley Square (near the finish line) to city hall plaza Government Center. It was a beautiful day, one of the first summer days of Boston, and the first pride festival I’ve been to.

A few friends and I went to support and watch the parade, including our school Emerson College. We had a good time, and it was a nice way to be an ally for the LGBTQ+ community in Boston. There were a lot of marchers, and it seemed like mostly corporate sponsors. But they, like everyone there, were still out there to celebrate and support one cause.

I don’t feel like there’s too much more I can add on about pride and Pride Month as a straight, cisgendered ally, so instead I took a bunch of photos. If you want to read about pride and the LGBTQIA+ community — its history, future, and other thoughts from trusted opinions — try here, here, or here.

These protesters weren’t an official part o the parade. Before everything got kicked off, they stood in front of everything and spoke about trans rights, POC exclusivity in the community, and how Boston Pride doesn’t acknowledge every identity.

Once the parade got started, there were many rainbows to be seen

Not 100% who this group was, but they looked like LGBTQ+ nerds/geeks/dorks/fans and I’m here for it
Powerful that they came to Boston, they got many cheers, and a few tears
The back of Elizabeth Warren’s head! Unlike a lot of the other politicians who came as themselves with signs and fanfare, Warren was just there, chilling and marching.

Happy Pride Month ❤️💛💚💙💜
