A staple of the last few years of Pride in Boston, the Trans Resistance March and Festival, is back for 2022. 

It’s the third annual march organized by Trans Resistance MA, a group that advocates for the “safety, joy, and liberation” of trans and queer people of color. The march starts at Cedar Square Park at 11 a.m. on June 25. 

“The Trans Resistance March and Festival is a celebration of TQBIPOC joy, community, and leadership,” Trans Resistance MA said on Instagram. “The 2022 Trans Resistance March & Festival is an authentic pride celebration, but we’re doing the work without the funding of corporate donors. We make all of our partners go through a partnership process to ensure that our values align, and we refuse to be the rainbow capitalist pride of the past.”


After the march, there will be a festival at the Franklin Park Playstead starting at 1 p.m. featuring performers and artists. Trans Resistance MA has so far introduced 22 performers on Instagram, many of whom are from Massachusetts. 

Beyond the march and festival performers, there will be food trucks, local vendors, and other resources, according to an Instagram post.
