Boston Pride Youth Dance
As Madonna’s “Music Inferno” hit commanded, “It’s time to get the dance shoes on!” The fifth annual Boston Pride Youth Dance, a haven of music, dancing, and chilling after the Parade and Festival, welcomes queer members of our community under 21 for a special event at City Hall’s own inner garden. Like Dorothy, climb up the brick road on the side of the building—or request usage of the accessible indoor ramp and elevator, should you need—to ascend to the special hideaway. DJ Lisa and MC Yolanda of DanceAway Sound return to ignite the dancefloor for several hundred youths coming from all over New England. Door prizes will once again be awarded to lucky winners mid-evening. Along with free water all evening, a range of flags showcasing the Pride rainbow and the colors of queer identities will be available for sale ($10.00). In the words of the Material Girl, “Music makes the people come together, yeah!” •
