Boston Pride and the City of Boston announced today that the Boston Pride Parade and Festival will not be held in June but may be rescheduled for later this fall similar to other large annual events like the Boston Marathon. The reason for the postponement is due to the ongoing state of emergency from the coronavirus pandemic. Large gatherings in the state have been banned until Massachusetts moves into Phase 4.
Boston Pride also announced that it will be developing a series of virtual events in June to commemorate Pride Month and the 50th anniversary of Boston Pride. Virtual events being planned for June include the Pride Flag Raising at City Hall Plaza and the Pride Lights ceremony to honor all those lost to and affected by HIV/AIDS. More information on these events will be available in the coming weeks.
