Here is the Radio Boston rundown for June 10. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • June is LGBTQ Pride month. And there's a shakeup in Boston Pride leadership. Board President Linda DeMarco says she will resign this summer, after a year of pressure from local activists seeking leadership inclusion for Black and Trans members of the LGBTQ community. WBUR's Arielle Gray brings us the latest.
  • New polling suggests that Massachusetts residents do not want our streets to return to the "old normal" after the pandemic. What should our roads look like after COVID? We hear from WBUR's Zeninjor Enwemeka and Brad Rawson, the director of mobility for the city of Somerville.
  • Before the pandemic, many parents tried to limit children’s screen time. What is it going to mean for this generation of kids now that "screen time" was essentially required for over a year? We take listener calls with Dr. Andrea Spencer, child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist at Boston Medical Center and assistant professor of psychiatry at the Boston University School of Medicine, and Quiana Agbai, Boston parent, entrepreneur and author of the blog and Instagram account “Harlem Lovebirds.”

This program aired on June 10, 2021.
