reclaim Boston Pride - Boycott pride 

Pride should belong to the community, should serve the entire community, and should remain true to its historical roots of addressing the injustices faced by the most disadvantaged among us. Pride for the People was founded in response to the institutionalized racism and white centeredness that has structured Boston Pride for decades.

 

In early June, the Boston Pride Board removed “#blacklivesmatter” and rewrote portions of a statement written by the communications team condemning unjust police violence against Black People, and posted it. This “misstep” was not an isolated incident of failing to adequately address racism, but part of a long history of poor relationships with Greater Boston’s communities of Queer & Trans Black, Indigenous, People of Color (QTBIPOC). 

 

The current Pride Board no longer holds the trust of LGBTQ+ community that Boston Pride is supposed to serve and Pride for the People has called for the current board of Boston Pride to step down.
