Reflections On: Boston Pride 2011 & 2012


With MassEquality Interns and Board Members before marching in the Parade, in front of the Cyclorama.

For the first time in 2011, I marched with a group in the Boston Pride Parade: MassEquality.


If there is one thing Boston Pride 2011 wasn’t, it would be “dry.” It was raining the entire time. I recall Charles Street being one of the worst parts of the route that day.


Marching with MassEquality on Tremont Street in the South End.

It was great to march with my State Senator, Sonia Chang-Díaz.

Ready to volunteer for Boston Pride 2012 in Copley Square.

The following year I decided to volunteer for the Boston Pride Committee, having a more active role in the events instead of just attending-not-partying type. I’m not the party animal, as I find it too frivolous and inconsequential. If there is anything I should be celebrating, it’s not really Pride, because I can celebrate being myself any day of the year, but rather, I should be celebrating personal victories that have deep impacts on my life.
