LexPride Day Trip to Provincetown

Join LexPride as we venture out to Provincetown, renown for its LGBTQ+ friendly culture, beaches, shows, art scene, and more.

We plan to take the Boston Harbor Cruises ferry from Boston’s Long Wharf (near the Aquarium) to Provincetown’s MacMillan Wharf and back, with time to have fun during the day:

  • 8:30am ferry to Provincetown (arrives 10:00am)

  • 4:00pm ferry back to Boston (arrives 5:30pm)

Boston Harbor Cruises runs ferries several times during the day, so you are welcome to come and go at different times and meet us in Provincetown any time.

We will create an itinerary for the day, and you can join us for all or part of it as suits you.

50 Years Since Stonewall: Our Modern History

For the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, the Lexington Historical Society, LexPride, and Greater Boston PFLAG are hosting an exciting modern history event.

Dr. Gary Bailey, a highly sought-after speaker and professor, will engage us with a much more nuanced understanding of LGBTQ+ history since Stonewall than we typically see. He will also moderate a panel of Lexington residents of varying LGBTQ+ and other identities who actually lived this history.

This one-of-a-kind event is not to be missed. Please bring yourself, your friends, your families, your neighbors, your pets (just kidding, no pets except service animals), and anyone else you can think of.

This event is free and open to all. The Depot is wheelchair accessible. Speakers will use microphones, and assistive listening devices will be available. Please let us know if you have any accessibility concerns.

Reel Queer Watches Stonewall Uprising

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, we’re screening the PBS documentary Stonewall Uprising. “In the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, police raided the Stonewall Inn, a popular gay bar in the Greenwich Village section of New York City. Such raids were not unusual in the late 1960s, an era when homosexual sex was illegal in every state but Illinois. That night, however, the street erupted into violent protests and demonstrations that lasted for the next six days.The Stonewall riots, as they came to be known, marked a major turning point in the modern gay civil rights movement in the United States and around the world.”

This film is unrated and has a runtime of 1 hour and 23 minutes.
