Some things really do get better with age, and Boston Gay Pride is no exception. Started in 1970 by a small group of gay and lesbian Vietnam War protesters, it continued and grew, becoming one of the oldest surviving festivals of its kind. Today, Boston Pride attracts more than 400,000 participants annually. A recent piece in The Boston Globe makes the case that Boston actually powered the birth of the gay rights movement.
