The event features awesome vendors, performers, marching, movement & of course LGBTQ youth leaders from across Massachusetts gathering for this once-a-year opportunity. Rain or shine, Massachusetts Youth Pride brings out all the rainbows! Massachusetts Youth Pride is then followed in the evening with the BAGLY Prom which is 35 years strong.
