Boston Gay Pride Week takes place every year in June and is the largest Gay Pride event in New England. The event includes a series of neighbourhood block parties and the main parade.
Highlights of Boston Gay Pride week include the official flag raising ceremony, a pride day celebration, a Pride night in the legendary Fenway Park and the High Heel Dash for Charity.
The Parade Route
The main parade starts at Boylston and Clarendon streets, jogging down into the city’s most gay-identified neighborhood, the historic South End. The parade winds northeast, then north on Berkeley Street into the Back Bay, where it turns east onto Boylston Street and passes by the famed Boston Public Garden and the posh (and very gay-friendly) Four Seasons Boston. It then turns left onto Charles Street, heading north alongside the scenic Boston Common, before turning east on Beacon Street and passing before the Massachusetts State House, then winding around Tremont Street and Cambridge Street to end at Boston City Hall.
This is one of the more popular and scenic gay pride marches in the country, drawing enormous crowds and passing before some of the city’s most prominent sites.
At the end of the parade the Boston Gay Pride Festival takes place at City Hall Plaza with a series of concerts and parties.
On Sunday, the fun continues with a pair of GLBT Block Parties, held in two of the city’s most gay-popular neighborhoods, the Back Bay and Jamaica Plain. In the Back Bay (right by the South End), the Back Bay Block Party takes place from 1 until 8 pm.
Over in Jamaica Plain, affectionately known as “JP”, the Jamaica Plain Block Party takes place from 2 until 8 pm on Perkins Street, between Centre Street and South Huntington Avenue.
Those looking for a late brunch should check out Classic Harbor Lines’ Drag Brunch Cruise. There are plenty of Pride parties going on around the city before and after the parade weekend. The Revere Hotel Boston Common is hosting a big bash on its rooftop. Pride Week will wrap up at the Seaport nightclub The Grand, which is hosting a special finale party
