Boston’s first official Gay Pride March was held on Saturday, June 26, 1971. When the March took place it sought to highlight four oppressive institutions in Boston: the police, the government, hostile bars, and religious institutions.
Throughout the month of June, The History Project is offering walking tours that follow that first route of Boston’s Pride March and that tell the stories of different services, community organizations, issues, and individuals related to the route and to Boston’s LGBTQ history.
We offer four tour dates and times:
- Saturday, June 6, 12pm – 2pm
- Thursday, June 11, 5:30pm – 7:30 pm
- Saturday, June 20, 12pm – 2pm
- Saturday, June 27, 12pm – 2pm
Tours are $20 and meet outside Jacques’ Cabaret at 79 Broadway in Bay Village, take approximately 1.5 hours, and go on as scheduled, rain or shine.
