Event Details

BASK: an LGBTQ Person of Color Pride Picnic is a day of community building, food and performance to engage and entertain the larger queer community of color + friends in Greater Boston. Bring a blanket, food, drinks, pop a squat, and stay awhile!

This day will be packed with health sessions, musicians, poets, DJs, dance and other queer artists. 

We want to give OUR COMMUNITY a special space to celebrate our shared experiences during Pride Month and provide a platform for queer artists of color to showcase their work, be it music, dance, poetry, or visual art.

We will be posting a full schedule and featuring those performing on this event page -- so accept the invitation and stay tuned! To join the roster of performers, email Daniela Amaya, HUES Program Manager, at damaya@hbgc-boston.org. 

THIS IS A FREE EVENT! Help us make sure everyone is there by inviting folks into this page.
