Get ready to feel the pulse of pride through the streets of Boston! This month, the city is gearing up to celebrate Pride with an array of vibrant events happening all around the city.

It's been 20 incredible years since Massachusetts made history by becoming the first state in the nation to legalize gay marriage on May 17, 2004. And let's not forget the electrifying energy of last year's pride parade, where over 1 million people flooded the streets of Boston, making it the largest pride event in the region!
