Boston Public Library To Begin ‘Pride Month’ With ‘Pride Flag’ Event For Children

June 1, 2024

Boston Public Library is beginning the so-called ‘Pride Month’ on Saturday, June 1 with an event involving children ages 6 to 12 creating pride flags.

The library is hosting The History Project, which is “focused exclusively on documenting and preserving the history of New England’s LGBTQ communities and sharing that history with LGBTQ individuals, organizations, allies, and the public.”

Joan Ilacqua, the project’s executive director, will read the children “a book about Pride,” leading to a segment on “New England’s LGBTQ history.” Attendees can then “create their own buttons and flags,” according to an online description of the event.

Boston Public Library has a history of hosting comparable programming. NewBostonPost reported last June that the library put forward a book about a middle schooler who discovers she’s transgender in what the library calls a “family book club.”

The event on Saturday, June 1 event is scheduled to take place at Central Library in Copley Square.
