“The Grand Dance” – Boston Pride Parade 2017

In honor of the victims and survivors of the Orlando Pulse Night Club massacre, member Renee Manning created an entry for this year’s parade called “The Grand Dance”! Orlando pulse survivors heard of this tribute for them and twenty-nine survivors are coming to dance with us! The Grand Dance is asking anyone and everyone to walk/dance together TO HONOR THE VICTIMS AND SURVIVORS of the Orlando Pulse Club . Gay or straight, young or old, faith or no faith, if you are in a wheelchair or can be pulled in a wagon, everyone is welcome! The goal is 1000 people, hence “The Grand Dance”! Contact Renee for more information.

We have a float complete with DJ’s where the survivors will dance.  Forty-nine flags will encircle the float with the name of each person, honoring those taken from us too soon.  As the survivors dance on the float, we will surround them with a sea of love and support.  We shall never forget that tragic night. We can however plant a lasting joyous memory for all who participate. Please consider joining us Saturday June 10th!

Float assembly will start at 10:00 am at Dartmouth & Boylston St. (closest T stops at Copley and Arlington)
It would be great to have everyone assembled around the float by 11:00am.
We have 800 12”x18” Pride flags for those individuals that would like to wave a flag as we dance.
The parade starts at 12:00pm and ends at Government Center at 2pm.

“The Grand Dance” has been given the honor of carrying the Boston Pride Parades 30 foot x 60 foot Pride Flag. This is only the 2nd year this flag has been displayed in the parade!
Volunteer to “grab” a flag handle.

Every person has a busy schedule. I promise this will be a highlight of all your 2017 events.
