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.

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.
