Boston Pride announced “Stronger Together” for its 2017 theme chosen by the LGBTQ community through an online vote. It focuses on the current climate of political uncertainty & marginalization of LGBTQ people. “Stronger Together” stresses the imperative that the diverse groups that comprise the LGBTQ community stand together & fight for civil rights for all. “Stronger Together” will be used for all Boston Pride events throughout the year, culminating with Boston Pride Week to be held from June 2nd to June 11th. Sylvain Bruni, Boston Pride President stated, “Our 2017 theme, ‘Stronger Together’ is a call to action for all in the LGBTQ community & for our allies. The great strides that our community has made locally & nationally are threatened by the current poisoned political climate that seeks to replace equal rights with discrimination. We will not be silent, we will not be divided; we will be loud & united to show the world that the LGBTQ community will fight for the civil rights of all disenfranchised communities. Boston Pride is more energized than ever with great enthusiasm among our volunteers & the community. We look forward to having new groups join us for the Parade & Festival to make this year’s Boston Pride Week one of the biggest outpourings of celebration & activism for the LGBTQ community, showing everyone that we are truly Stronger Together.” Boston Pride produces events & activities to achieve inclusivity, equality, respect & awareness in Greater Boston & beyond. Fostering diversity, unity, visibility & dignity, they educate, communicate & advocate by building & strengthening community connections.
