Celebrate Pride in Somerville this month at the City’s annual flag raising and Big Gay Dance Party. 

First, join Mayor Curtatone and the Somerville High School Gender and Sexuality Awareness Alliance (GSA) on Wednesday, June 9, at 3 p.m. to raise the Pride flag in honor of LGBTQ+ Pride Month and LGBTQ+ Youth Pride. The ceremony will take place on the City Hall concourse at 93 Highland Avenue. Mayor Curtatone, Somerville LGBTQ+ Liaison Jack Treanor, Somerville High School teacher and GSA Advisor Julia Post, and a GSA student representative will speak at the event. 

Later in the week, the Big Gay Dance Party returns to Union Square Plaza with a “Coming Out… from Quarantine” theme. This free outdoor dance party will feature music by DJ Frenchy, drag performances by Amanda Playwith and JP, an art installation by Nate Devarie, and more. Join the festivities on Friday, June 11, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. (rain date: June 18).  

Both events are open to all members of the LGBTQ+ community and allies. Somerville Pride celebrations are sponsored by Mayor Joe Curtatone, the City of Somerville, the Somerville Arts Council, and the Health and Human Services Department.
