Pride Month has officially arrived, and celebratory drinks are in order. For the first time since 2019, the city will hold a Pride parade on June 10, organized by Boston Pride For The People (BP4TP). 

“It’s time for a unified Pride for everyone to enjoy,” BP4TP president Adrianna Boulin said in a press release. “The last time we came together, there was a different president, a different governor, a different mayor. The pandemic kept us apart for a long time. Now, all of us are eager to reconnect, embrace each other as a community, and most importantly have fun.”


You may be looking for a place to celebrate in the city. Many local restaurants and bars are serving specialty cocktails in honor of Pride, and we’ve rounded up six of them that you’ll want to try. Scroll down to see what you may want to sip on — many of the proceeds will go to organizations that support LGBTQ rights, like BAGLY (The Boston Alliance of Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer Youth).
