Pulse Orlando Survivors, Boston Pride benefit

Boston Pride

Tuesday’s benefit has been postponed – More details will follow

Organizers are fundraising to accommodate 32 of the survivors from the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando who have indicated they would like to travel to Boston Pride later this summer to celebrate Pride one year after the horrible tragedy which resulted in 49 people being murdered  and 53 wounded.

To make this a reality a Go Fund Me page was set up.  The benefit originally scheduled for Tuesday, April 18th at Club Cafe has been postponed but more details will follow shortly. In the interim share the Go Fund Me link with friends to help raise funds to bring these survivors to Boston for a weekend celebrating Pride: Go Fund Me page.

LGBT group denied to march in Boston St. Patrick’s Day parade

gay boston, lgbt rightsIn case you missed it, today’s Boston Globe is reporting something I read on Facebook last night, but didn’t believe (this is the age of fake news after all).

It appears that the Gay veterans group (OUTVETS), which has marched in the two previous St. Patrick’s Day parades in Boston is saying it was denied spot in South Boston parade later this month.

OUTVETS posted a statement on its Facebook page late Tuesday. Ed Flynn, a South Boston resident and a member of the South Boston Allied War Veterans Council — the parade’s organizer — confirmed that the group did not receive approval to participate in the March 19th parade.

Thus far neither Mayor Walsh nor Governor Baker have commented and the organizers of the parade which voted 9-4 against allowing the veterans group to march in the parade had not returned emails by the time the article published.

Follow the OUTVETS facebook page for updates.
