Boston Pride Back Bay block party

On Sunday, Boston Pride hosts their official block party from 12-8 PM. The weather was absolutely spectacular and a large crowd came out to enjoy themselves. Below are a few photos from the block party.

Boston Pride Parade and Saturday Block Party

This past Saturday Boston hosted its 44th annual Boston Pride Parade with approximately 25,000 people marching in the parade. The parade’s grand marshals were Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Mayor Marty Walsh.  This year’s theme was Be Yourself, Change the World.  Below are photos from Saturday’s party and the Chandler Street Block party that raises funds for AIDS Action.

Boston Pride Back Bay block party

gay pride boston, back bay block partyDon’t miss this fun block party.  The DJs are always excellent and the event is well run.  The party started a few hours ago so the line may be long when you get there but Boston Pride does  a good job at keeping the line moving so don’t be discouraged.

Sunday, June 15, 2014 from 12 noon – 8 pm
Back Bay on St. James Avenue
$15 with proceeds going to Boston Pride Committee

See you there.

Not quite a Vintage ‘Tube clip but in honor of Boston Pride I thought I’d share a video compilation of 2013 Boston Pride.

Have a great evening.

OUT at Fenway

Red Sox Pride NightGuess where I am tonight?  Pity this isn’t the 2013 Red Sox but I’m hopeful the Red Sox offense will show up tonight. If you are at Fenway, say hello. I’m in the section that gets up and dances at every possible opportunity; at least that is how it worked last year.

Heels for Hope

BAGLYEach year there is that one party or event that exceeds expectations and floods Facebook with photos.  For Boston Pride 2014, I think that event was Heels for Hope. When Michael Labrecque and his friends approached BoMA to host a party that involved high heels and helping Boston Alliance for Gay and Lesbian Youth (BAGLY) none of them realized how many guys would show up. Kudos to the group for raising $2,800 for BAGLY and for hosting what turned out to be one of my favorite parties of the year. Below I’ve included some of the photos from all the fun.

Boston Pride guide: Weekend edition

Boston PrideLast week I wrote a post about all the programs and events that have caught my eye for Boston Pride 2014.  With Pride celebrations final weekend nearly upon us, I thought I’d share some of the events / programs that get a thumbs up from me.

Red Sox FanThursday, June 12th:  Pride Night at Fenway Park or Cathedral Station Grand Opening

If you have not purchased tickets for Pride Night at Fenway Park a great Plan B is to swing by Cathedral Station (formerly Red Fez) on their opening night. This is Boston’s newest gay sports bar. Cathedral Station has free parking, affordable drinks and a game room with plenty of TVs to cheer on the Red Sox.

 

Fur and GoldFriday, June 13th: Fur & Gold Pride Edition at The Alley

I’ll confess I’m not a dancer so I’m not sure if I’ll attend but this can be a fun party with good music, affordable drinks and no attitude.  This is not an official Pride event so for details check out the Fur and Gold Facebook Page.

 

Friday, June dBar Stoplight Parrty13th: Stoplight Party at dBar in Dorchester

If Fur & Gold isn’t your scene, dBar will be full of twinks & 20-somethings.  Party Details Here

 

Chandler Street Block PartySaturday, June 14th:  Boston Pride Parade, Chandler Street Block Party and House of Blues Main Event with DJ Abel

The Boston Pride parade starts one hour earlier this year at 11AM and is free and open to the public.  Check out the annual Chandler Street Block Party from 1:30 – 7 PM ($15 – proceeds go to The AIDS Action).

 

House of Blues Boston Pride 2014

Saturday, June 14th:  House of Blues: Epic Saturday w/ DJ Abel and Paradise Pride Bash

Should you have the energy, the largest party in town will be at Boston’s House of Blues, where DJ Abel will whip everyone into a frenzy or if HOB isn’t your scene but you want to dance check out Paradise in Cambridge but get there early because the line to get into both places will be ridiculous.

This is possibly the best block party Boston hosts all year and is worth attending. Enter on the corner of Stuart and Berkeley Street. A $15 donation is requested with all proceeds going to the Boston Pride Committee.

Boston Pride Retrospective featured on Boston.com

Steven BaumbachLocal photographer, Stephen Baumbach, hosted his one-night Boston Pride Retrospective at Back Bay Harry’s last night.  I wanted to thank Stephen for his hard work and sharing the images as well as Boston Pride and Back Bay Harry’s (with special thanks to Harry Collings) for helping to make this happen on such short notice.

Boston.com was on hand to photograph the event featured it today on their website.  You can check out the photos from last night’s show on Boston.com, here.

This was my favorite photograph from the show.
