      Boston Pride Announces Call for 40th Anniversary Theme

      P R E S S   R E L E A SE

      Linda DeMarco, President
      Boston Pride


      Boston, MA, November 1, 2009 - The Boston Pride Committee is excited to announce the nomination period for the 2010 Pride theme. "This is a special year for us" says Linda DeMarco, President of the Board of Directors for the Committee. "This year will mark our 40th anniversary, and we have a lot to celebrate."

      DeMarco goes on to explain that it was 40 years ago that a group from our community gathered on the Boston Common to protest the discrimination they were facing. "The discrimination was literally killing people in our community," DeMarco adds, "and after the Stonewall uprising, Boston's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community responded. Because of this remarkable anniversary, our theme needs to be special."

      The Boston Pride Committee first opened the annual theme nomination process to the public when searching for the theme for the 2008 celebration, and the number of submissions has grown exponentially since then. Anyone can nominate a theme by visiting www.bostonpride.org/theme. The nomination period will open November 1st and remain open until November 15th. The Committee will then compile the nominations, and open the voting period to the public on November 22nd. The results will be announced after December 5th.

      Questions can be directed to info@... or by calling the Committee's PrideLine at 617-262-9405.
