  • Boston Pride - Saturday, June 10, 2023. Commission participation discussion. 

11.Report from Rainbows Across Communities

  • We discussed the idea of having a bigger-than-usual Pride event in each town, as it does not seem that Boston will be having a parade. (Update: looks like they might!) Inviting groups to table, vendors to sell food, and a rain location were put forward as ideas. North Shore Pride does a big Pride celebration on Salem Common (with a parade before). We may be able to use them as a resource on logistics. Bill has invited them to join Rainbows Across Communities.  

  • The Belmont LGBTQ Alliance is planning on showing the documentary "No Ordinary Man" about jazz musician Billy Tipton for TDOV, tentatively, Belmont Library in person, March 31, 7 PM.
