Boston Gay Pride Parade’s Political Agenda

Today the 42nd annual Boston Pride Parade is scheduled to kick off at noon & for the first time in years it’s sunny with no rain in the forecast. This being an election year Governor Deval Patrick will be leading a group of volunteer supporters for President Obama. Patrick is the national co-chair of Obama's re-election campaign. Deval & the Obama for America volunteers will gather on Boylston street between Dartmouth & Clarendon streets at 11:30A. Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren also plans on marching in the parade. Hopefully Senator Scott Brown will be nowhere in sight with his weak LGBT equality stance. We have a lot to celebrate this year with Obama becoming the first president to come out for gay marriage & GLAD (Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders) will be marching after their victory with the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that section 3 of DOMA, (the Defense of Marriage Act) which denies us of our 1100+ federal benefits is unconstitutional. Now most likely marriage equality will be headed to the Supreme Court. Then of course every local pro-equality candidate will be marching seeking our votes. There will also be tons of floats & marching bands & just fabulous fun. We’ll be taking pictures & have a full update after the parade. HAPPY PRIDE BOSTON!!
