BBA Shows Pride in Boston

This past Saturday, thousands marched in the 43rd annual Boston Pride Festival. This year’s theme, “Moving Forward…Proud, Strong, United” comes just weeks before the Supreme Court will rule on the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act.

BBA staff set up their booth at City Hall Plaza, and reached out to the community by providing information on how to obtain a lawyer from the BBA Lawyer Referral Service.

Notable Pride attendees included Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, U.S. Rep. Joe Kennedy III, Former U.S. Rep. Barney Frank, and Senator Elizabeth Warren.

This year marked the 43rd year of Boston Pride, which over the decades has celebrated and promoted equal rights for the area’s gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities.

BBA employees Katie D’Angelo and Solana Goss helped to staff the BBA LRS Booth.

Pride Festival attendees celebrate their inclusivity, equality, respect, and awareness in Greater Boston.

Approximately 35,000 people attended Pride Parade as participants and spectators in support of the cause.
