Although I never watched the reality show, Survivor, I’m assuming there are plenty of people who do (or have) and will recognize this former contestant, Michael Yerger, who appeared on the show in 2018. He makes for the perfect piece of mancandy and I hope you find this a pleasant distraction.

Boston Pride disolves

Boston Pride

Boston Pride has been embroiled in a nasty back-and-forth with activists who have called the organization racist and “trans-exclusionary”. In response to the ongoing pressure and criticism Boston Pride president, Linda DeMarco, stepped down last month. For background on her departure and the criticism leveled at the organization, read more here.

Activists were not satisfied by that response saying it was too little too late and that the all white Boston Pride board didn’t represent the LGBTQ+ community and needed to resign now. And a boycott Boston Pride event was scheduled on Saturday, June 12th in conjunction with the second annual Trans Resistance March and Vigil. In response to the mounting pressure, the Boston Pride Board issued a statement today at 4:30 p.m. that the entire Board would resign and Boston Pride will shutdown.

“By making the decision to close down, we hope new leaders will emerge from the community to lead the Pride movement in Boston.”

– Boston Pride Board of Directors

You can read the full resignation letter online at, www.bostonpride.org.

The sudden dissolution of Boston Pride puts into question if there will be a 50th anniversary Boston Pride celebration later this fall. Earlier this year Boston Pride had indicated in-person celebrations might be scheduled in October.
