Third Annual Pride Flag Raising set for June 8 in Piers Park

(EAST BOSTON) This Wednesday, June 8, East Boston residents along with elected and local officials will gather at Piers Park for the third annual LGBT Pride Flag raising. This relatively new East Boston tradition is the result of residents recognizing that one of the neighborhoods best kept secrets is its diversity on every level. The flag raising and display in Piers Park, aligned with Boston’s Pride Week, provides an opportunity for East Boston’s LGBT Community, family friends and allies to celebrate LGBT Pride in their hometown.

‘The rainbow flag is a universal symbol that conveys instantly that all are welcome in East Boston’ described one of the event organizers – Celeste Ribeiro Myers

“It’s great to be celebrating the 3rd Annual Gay Pride Day Flag raising at Piers Park. I hope every East Bostonian will come by to show their support to our LGBT neighbors, family and friends’. - City Councilor Sal LaMattina

“I am excited to celebrate Boston Pride Month with the raising of the Pride Flag at Piers Park, which is now an East Boston tradition.” - State Representative Adrian Madaro
