Boston Pride 2019

  • City Hall Plaza Boston, MA (map)

This year had the biggest Boston Pride parade I’ve seen. Wowza. The volume of people, the length of the parade, the size of the festival at City Hall Plaza... either Boston is getting gayer, or more people are coming out to join in the party on a beautiful June day.

We stuck with the parade for 3 hours, or until the Bruins beaver mascot showed up waving and wearing a rainbow lei. Turns out he’s not a beaver, but a bear. My mistake.

Bonus: Todrick Hall headlined the pride festival concert! From where I stood, he was a small dancing speck, but still cool to see someone famous.

Bonus, bonus: Aisha and I decided to forgo the after parties with their outrageous covers ($30 just to get into the ladies’ party?? Do they think us queers are made out of money?!) and stay in watching Tales of the City instead. :)
