By supporting these efforts, we celebrate the impact being made across marginalized subgroups & through creative approaches, while safeguarding our history & embracing what is possible for the future of the LGBTQ community.” Linda J. DeMarco, Boston Pride President concluded, “Boston Pride has grown tremendously. As an organization that creates programming, events & forums for the LGBTQ community, we also are dedicated to helping strengthen grassroots organizations that serve our community & where much of the work on the ground is being done.” Boston Pride produces events & activities to achieve inclusivity, equality, respect & awareness in Greater Boston & beyond.
