Patricks march in Gay Pride parade
In a ringing celebration, tens of thousands lined Boston's streets for today's annual Gay Pride parade, a festive march that featured Governor Deval Patrick and his 18-year-old daughter Katherine, who this week announced she is a lesbian. The Patrick family, including First Lady Diane Patrick, drew resounding applause as they marched along Beacon Street past the State House to City Hall. Patrick, who already enjoyed strong support among gays and lesbians for his strong support for gay marriage, has been hailed as a model of parental acceptance for his unconditional support for his daughter.

We need a few more SMART politicians to do the same! Whether or not they be a good Republican, Democrat, and or an Independent !!!

Agreed, pity too many politicians will be thinking of their far right voters and not admit that they have little problems with those of us in the GLBT community. Hell, they are too afraid to admit that they have family members who are gay, or that they themselves might be gay.

Can anyone tell me when a gaybar named playland in combat zone closed? I was there once in 84 . I remember the pictures of old move. Stars. I was 20 and just out of the army. I like older men so for me being young. And handsome and there being a lot of professional 40ish hot dads I was in heaven. Clean-cut lawyers and doctors and other bussinessmen I can still smell the brylcreem and old spice! Never got to go back. I was told it closed right after I went there. Recently I was reminiscing and read it was open till 98 is that true? I ended up going to sporters and napoleans for the short time I lived in boston .
