On June 12, 2016, a terrorist traveled to Orlando and targeted members of our community, for who they are, in a place where our brothers and sisters felt a sense of community and security.  At the end of this hate crime, the worst mass shooting in US history, we lost 49 brothers and sisters while 53 others lay horribly wounded fearing for their lives.  

Boston based LGBT advocates and organizations hope to open our arms, envelop these amazing individuals, and honor these brave survivors throughout the weekend of Boston Pride, June 9-12. 

Help us raise the funds necessary to welcome our brothers and sisters for a weekend of "community" and "celebration".  Boston Pride and the LGBT community will be honoring these survivors, as well as those who lost their lives that fateful day, throughout the weekend as we help them move past this particular day that has caused so much trauma in their lives.  We have 32 survivors interested in coming together in the city of Boston, and we would like funding for every one of them if possible.

We would like to thank Club Cafe here in Boston for providing the space for the benefit, scheduled for 4/18/17.  We would also like to recognize Toys for Joys,  JetBlue Airways, and a number of local personalities including Trampolina!!

We are delighted to announce that Tito's Handmade Vodka has stepped forward to commit $5,000 to the cause. This is amazing. In addition, JetBlue has contributed 10 roundtrip tickets towards the cause, and a particular hotel chain (name to be announced once finalized) will help significantly with reducing the costs of our endeavor. Please help us reach our goal!!
