Dear Mass NOW family,
Just because June is coming to an end, does not mean we stop celebrating Pride! At Mass NOW we talk Pride, periods, and sex all 365 days a year!
To cap out this month of pride-ful events, we invite you to join us tonight at 6 pm for our monthly chapter meeting. This month we’re talking about why we’re still boycotting Boston Pride, and what we can do to amplify Black and Brown trans voices during the boycott. We will be joined by Pride 4 the People to discuss how we can amplify the historically marginalized voices leading the way for change in our Queer community. You won’t want to miss the conversation!
We hope you can join us and continue celebrating Pride today and everyday of the year.
