Boston Pride Is No More — So What Comes Next?

Download Audio

Last week the decades-old Boston Pride group that organizes the city's Pride Parade announced that it will dissolve.

This comes after years of growing tension with other Boston-based LGBTQ+ community leaders and organizations, which culminated in a boycott of Boston Pride and the Boston Pride Parade by 26 LGBTQ+ organizations.

We hear from WBUR's Arielle Gray, who's been reporting on Boston Pride's tumultuous year.

Then, we turn to a panel of Boston LGBTQ+ activists, including Gary Daffin, the executive director of the Multicultural AIDS Coalition, and the co-chair of the Massachusetts Gay and Lesbian Political Caucus, and Julia Golden, the interim president of Trans Resistance MA.

Note: Representatives of Boston Pride declined our invitation to join the show.

This segment aired on July 13, 2021.
