Quincy’s First Pride Celebration to be held June 3, 2018, with Fundraiser scheduled for April 4, 2018 QUINCY, MA - The Q Pride Committee will be hosting the city of Quincy’s first ever LGBTQ Pride event, Q Pride, on the afternoon of Sunday, June 3, 2018. A fundraiser for Q Pride will be held on April 4, 2018. A free, family-friendly community event, Q Pride will be held at Pageant Field in Quincy, MA from 12-6 pm on Sunday, June 3, 2018. As a city that is known for its bold and historical traditions, the Q Pride Committee encourages and invites all friends of Quincy to help carry on that legacy by participating in the first annual Q Pride, a celebration of our families, our diversity, and our community. The Q Pride Committee is organizing food, entertainment, games and information tables for Q Pride. No rain date is scheduled.

“While the LGBTQ community of Quincy has always been welcome and a part of Boston Pride, many of us have wanted, for decades, an event of our own in our home city, Quincy. The time is now. We have a community that has become stronger by our struggles together. We are integral strands in the colorful and diverse tapestry of Quincy citizens. We are all one Quincy family. I am proud to have both my professional practice and my home in Quincy for over 20 years”, Dr. James P. Hahn, Atrius Health, Quincy.

“I am so proud to support my friends in the LGBTQ+ community. They have formed the Q Pride committee and have worked collaboratively to celebrate our historic and diverse community. The best is yet to come in Quincy and it starts with being inclusive and recognizing that we all play a part in making our city an even greater place to live.”, Quincy Councilor At Large, Anne Mahoney.

A fundraiser for the event will be held at the Fox & Hound, 123 Sea Street in Quincy, MA on Wednesday, April 4, 2018 at 6 pm. Light appetizers will be available, as well as a cash bar and raffle. Suggested donation is $25.00, payable in cash or checks made out to “Q Pride Committee”. We are also seeking corporate sponsorships and raffle items.
