• “Black, white, gay, straight—love does not discriminate!”

    Massachusetts has come out in force for Boston Pride. The energy at the recent Pride Parade was incredible, with thousands of participants and enthusiastic supporters lining the route.

    The Obama campaign in Massachusetts had a huge presence in the day’s events, with a large group of marchers and a busy booth at Boston’s City Hall Plaza, full of information and gear showing the President’s support for marriage equality.

    OFA MA’s new crew of summer organizing fellows got fired up for the march—their first event of the campaign.

    At the head of the parade, Governor Deval Patrick and his wife Diane marched wearing “LGBT for Obama” badges. They were followed by hundreds of supporters as they marched and chanted for the President’s support of marriage equality.

    “Hey, Romney! Don’t you see? Obama loves equality!”

    Hey Romney, don't you see? Boston loves equality!

    The Obama booth was one of the busiest at the parade, with people lining up to register to vote, signing up to volunteer, and showing their support with “Obama Pride” t-shirts and stickers.
