"The pandemic kept us apart for a long time. Now, all of us are eager to reconnect, embrace each other as a community, and most importantly have fun," said Adrianna Boulin, president of Boston Pride For The People, in a statement.

Mayor Michelle Wu thanked the organizers for continuing the city's history of advancing LBGTQ+ equity.

"I look forward to welcoming people from all across New England to Boston this June!" she said in a statement.

The previous organizers of Boston's pride parade, Boston Pride, shut down in 2021 amid criticism over the organization's inclusiveness.

Boston Pride said it has decided to dissolve, a difficult decision but one that allows new leadership to take over.

Last year, the city held a series of Pride month events called "A Very Proud City."
