10/31是台湾同志大游行,跟着作者 Louise 一起来到波士顿同志游行的现场,感受彩色的相爱风暴!

上周跟我实习的公司 Converse 参加波士顿一年一度的同性恋游行。跟着游行行走时看着两旁人群的欢呼,身为异性恋的我也感到非常感动。(爱没有界线:反同志夫妇到彩虹围城现场的感动:我们想理解儿子的“爱”

Last weekend, I attended the Boston Pride Festival with Converse and it's an unforgettable experience for me. Even though I'm straight, I still felt touched to hear the crowd roar when walking the parade. 

波士顿彩虹游行

源自旧金山的同志嘉年华,至今在世界各地已经有不同城市每年择期纷纷响应。波士顿的游行全程走完费时两小时,封街游行时看着道路两旁的人一直为你鼓掌,连不是同志的我都深受整场同志嘉年华的勇气和意义感动到差点落泪。

六色彩虹旗是同志游行的代表色,也因此不管是行前餐会装饰小物还是参加游行的人们也都呼应彩虹旗色彩,纷纷以各色红、橙、黄、绿、蓝和紫点缀。很多人也将自己的婴儿或宠物绑上彩色缎带,使出浑身解数参加这个盛大的同志嘉年华游行。(推荐给你:爱的街头宣言!四个属于台湾的同志进程

Boston Pride Parade

The Pride Parade originated in San Francisco, now it is a festival that celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual and transexual culture and has expanded to various cities in the world. In Boston, it takes about two hours to walk the full route. When marching the parade, the bravery of this celebration event moved me a lot.

Since rainbow is a symbol of Pride Parade, it's time to wear everything on rainbows. The city was covered with rainbow flags, curtains, flyers and paradegoers all dressed in multi colors. When attending such a vibrant event, don't be shy and try having fun with creative rainbow outfits!
