And Light up City Hall Every Night, Kicking off LGBTQ Pride Month

FRAMINGHAM, MA – Mayor Yvonne M. Spicer, Framingham School Superintendent Dr. Robert Tremblay, City Councilors and School Committee members invite the community to the inaugural Pride Flag Raising Ceremony on Saturday, June 1, at 11:30 a.m. in the Memorial Plaza of City Hall at 150 Concord Street. 

Join us as we kick off Pride Month to encourage and promote diversity, tolerance, and inclusiveness. Mayor Spicer, Dr. Tremblay, the entire City Council, and the entire School Committee came together to sign a joint proclamation to declare June 2019 as Pride Month in the City of Framingham. In the proclamation, they requested Framingham residents to respect, honor, and recognize the enduring efforts and ongoing contributions of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer members of our community. 

Parking will be available in the City Hall lot, at the old Danforth Museum site located at 121 Union Avenue, and the MBTA Parking lot at 1 Franklin Street. This event will take place rain or shine.
