The Hull Gay Pride Committee would like to thank everyone that attended and supported our 5th Annual Hull Pride event this Saturday at Mariner’s Park and the Hull Yacht Club. This year’s event was the biggest one ever, and we are grateful that so much of Hull and the South Shore showed up to support the LGBTQ community. The theme of our annual event has always been Inclusion and you could see that on full display this weekend: families, gay couples, straight couples, neighbors, summer visitors and more, all enjoying the day’s field games, live music and dance party. We awarded our first Hull Pride scholarship to a brand new graduate of Hull High School. We were humbled by the Town of Hull’s official proclamation of June 3, 2017 as Hull Pride Day. And we were grateful for all the hard work of our hosts at the Hull Yacht Club, especially Lenny Russell and Sue Flaherty. A special thanks to all the volunteers, participants, vendors and visitors who made the event possible including: drag-queen-in-chief Trampolina; our live band SeaWitch; artist Trish Turner for our raffle prize; photographer Joe Berkeley; Nona’s Ice Cream; L Street Pizza; Selectmen Domenico Sestito, Chris Mitchell and Jen Constable; State Representative Joan Meschino; and our growing team of committee members that spent a year planning all the logistics, marketing and more.

Peace and love,
