Boston Returns to Copley to Show Its Pride
Boston has several reasons to be proud: Whether it’s because of the city’s resilience in the aftermath of the April Boston Marathon Bombings, the fact that its hometown hockey team will return to the Stanley Cup Finals, or the idea that it has one of the most passionate, involved communities around – no one can argue Boston is not a proud city.
There is no better proof of that last thought than at the annual Boston Pride Parade. The parade, in its 43rd year, marched through Copley Square, bent toward the South End and wound back uptown toward Government Center, beginning just after noon on Saturday.
Thousands lined the streets on a picture perfect day, not only to stand in solidarity with the LGBT community, but to reinforce “Boston Strong” at the very site from which that movement began.
