Last Saturday, residents of the Greater Boston area gathered together to celebrate LGBT pride. This week-long, yearly event included a variety of activities, with the main attraction being the Boston Pride Parade that made its way through downtown Boston and ended in City Hall Plaza with the Boston Pride Festival. Everyone from local businesses to newlywed couples participated in the parade, along with supporting churches, biker gangs, and government candidates showing their support and pride.
