As the capital of the first state in the Union and only the sixth jurisdiction in the world to accept same-sex marriage, Boston’s Pride Parade is an especially meaningful event for the LGBT community and its supporters. Taking place near the end of Boston’s Pride Week, the parade’s scenic route begins near Copley Square and passes many notable sites and neighborhoods. These include the historic South End, the Boston Public Garden, the Boston Common, the State House, and concludes at Boston City Hall. Boston’s Pride Parade is one of the most popular in the US, especially in the Northeast, and draws enormous crowds every year. If you can’t make it for the parade, the week leading up will offer tons of exciting events including block parties and conferences.
