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.

Happy Pride Month ❤️💛💚💙💜
