PHOTOS: Pride Event On Boston Common Celebrates Lesbian Identity

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Pride Month is well underway with events happening around Boston. One event that occurred on the Common Friday evening was meant as a chance for lesbians to celebrate the identity.

The event has been around since the 1990s.

“It’s about joining. It’s about unity. It’s about realizing, especially for young kids who are coming out— it’s about realizing that you’re not alone and that there’s someone who looks like you, who feels like you, and who loves like you,” North Shore Pride President Hope Watt-Bucci said.

As a clinical social worker, she said that goes a long way toward helping a person accept and embrace who they are.
