BAGLY, Boston PrideMark your calendars because one of the best events the week of Boston Pride, Heels for Hope, has announced that the 2018 event will take place at Club Cafe Monday, June 4th.

I’ll be sad to miss this year’s event – I will be in NYC for a far less fabulous work event, but I hope you will attend the event and head over to Dorothy’s Boutique on Mass Ave and pick up a new pair of pumps to celebrate.

Heels for Hope tonight at Club Cafe

boston pride, BAGLYEach Pride there is that one party or event that exceeds expectations and floods Facebook with photos.  For the past three years that event during Boston Pride (in my opinion) has been Heels for Hope.

When Michael Labrecque and his friends started this event / fundraiser to help raise funds for Boston Alliance for Gay and Lesbian Youth (BAGLY) they had no idea how popular this ‘unofficial’ Boston Pride event would be. This year the event has moved to Club Cafe and will take place tonight. You can buy a pair of heels if you’re in a pinch at Dorothy’s Boutique on Mass Ave and head over to Club Cafe. For more information check out the Facebook page, Heels for Hope.

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.


LGBT Prom Tonight in Boston

LGBT YouthProm is a quintessential American right of passage that dominates teen movies and is part of the fabric of American culture.  Tonight more than 1,000 Boston area LGBT teens will come to dance and have fun at the nation’s oldest annual (and largest) LGBT Prom.

This tradition which started in 1981 is now held at Boston City Hall to accommodate the crush of teenagers who come to celebrate Prom with other gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth in a safe and accepting environment. Want to donate to BAGLY or learn more about this year’s prom which starts at 7PM tonight?
