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.
I’m a big fan of PBS NewsHour. The news program doesn’t use a slate of “experts” who postulate endlessly back and forth nor does it conflate opinion with news. The broadcast which airs Monday – Friday at 6PM ET also covers a wide range of news (including events happening outside the United States – imagine that).
However, what I like the most about PBS NewsHour are their series and special reports like last week’s “Brief But Spectacular take on making conversation”. Listen to Fred Dust’s 3-minute video if you have a moment.
Apparently perusing the random posts of friends on Facebook can be fun if your friends have the same twisted sense of humor. This advertisement is both funny and depressing, but perhaps the best part / most horrifying part is the product’s actual website. Be sure to read the “How to” instructions page and the happy customer testimonials.
The website is full of humorous / horrifying bits such as this helpful tip… Of the women surveyed, 65% said that grey pubic hair turned them off completely.
Anyone being forced to participate in an holiday gift swap? I’d suggest adding this for your next Yankee Swap.
