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. Read more.

Beehive hairdo in Boston Pride parade

Aside from a brief and not very heavy spot of rain, it was a perfect day for the annual Pride parade from Copley Square to City Hall Plaza.

We stationed ourselves on Charles Street. By the time it was all over, the kidlet had built up quite the collection of beads.

One of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence:

Pride Sister

He's got wings!

Lissa Harris ponders Bill Berggren, who is not only the group's fundraising committee chair, but coordinator for the Pride Idol talent contest this year. He says he isn't hiding his past and is only involved in 18+ events. She writes:

... Interviews with former and current Pride volunteers made it clear that the organization doesn't consider Berggren's sex-offender status an issue. The consensus is that he's up-front about his history, he's served his time and he doesn't need reminding to stay away from the under-18 crowd.
