Boston Pride announced today that rather than board members resigning and letting people who are more sensitive to trans and Black issues step up, it's simply dissolving the entire organization, so maybe somebody else will organize the parade and other events from now on.
It is clear to us that our community needs and wants change without the involvement of Boston Pride. We have heard the concerns of the QTBIPOC community and others. We care too much to stand in the way. Therefore, Boston Pride is dissolving. There will be no further events or programming planned, and the board is taking steps to close down the organization.
We know many people care about Pride in Boston, and we encourage them to continue the work. By making the decision to close down, we hope new leaders will emerge from the community to lead the Pride movement in Boston.
