Boston Pride & St. Patrick’s Parade

The LGBT organization Boston Pride will march for the second year in the historic South Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade which will be held on Sunday, March 20th at 1P. Last year Boston Pride & a few other LGBT groups made history by marching in the annual parade after a 20 year absence. Boston Pride’s parade contingent will include a decorated trolley with supporters marching alongside. Sylvain Bruni, President of Boston Pride said that Boston Pride’s experience last year was positive & they look forward to another similar reception from the community in South Boston stating, “This is truly another great moment for Boston Pride, for the LGBT community & for South Boston, as we prepare for our second St. Patrick’s Day Parade. We are looking forward to honoring the Irish heritage of the members of our community & our veterans. We invite everyone to join us for this celebration. We were thrilled with the positive response from parade-goers last year as Boston Pride marched through the streets of South Boston. There are many members of Boston Pride who are veterans & of Irish descent & being able to march in the South Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade for the second year is a great accomplishment for us all.” The South Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade is organized by the Allied War Veteran’s Council & is the nation’s longest running public parade
