The Dorchester LGBT Pride Event

Wanted to get together and have some fun celebrating pride on Saturday June 14th 2014.  I knew I would miss the pride parade because I was working that day until 6:30PM.  So, I decided to host an events for myself and others that were working that day. While there were plenty of events happening around Boston, I wanted to make sure there was something for the LGBT community in Dorchester.

3 days before the event at Mi Casa Tu Casa at 299 Handcock St. Dorchester MA I hung up about 15 8X10 signs with a brand new link leading to the group.  I do not beleive these signs received much response. Were were at 125 when the signs went up and now we're at 127.  This seems like the slow normal growth of the group.

The event was fun.  Although it was just 4 of us and all people I had met before, I had a really good time. It was great getting to know Chris, Ricky and Keith a little bit more than I knew them already. The dinning room that night seemed to be lead by one woman handling the register, serving the food and busing the tables. The tacos I had were great.  Wish I would have ordered more than two and also wish I would have asked for a fork. I'm not a big guy, but I had a big appetite that night.

Looking forward to visiting Mi Casa Tu Casa again, but this will not be for some time.  The Dorchester LGBT Group still has plenty of places in Dorchester to explore.  I want to learn about all the great venues available in Dorchester MA.

This event was also suppose to be about sharing all things we're proud of.  I tried to get people to bring in photos or items that represent their pride.  It didn't work out like I planned. Still, I wanted to share this painting.  Although I am far from being even a good painter I take pride in my efforts towards creating something beautiful.
