Boston Pride is moving the date of the Boston Mayoral Candidates Forum from June 7th at 7pm to June 14th at 8pm out of respect to the groups (TransResistanceMA, Transgender Emergency Fund, MassTPC and Mass NOW) that scheduled a candidates’ forum on June 7th at 7pm. The issues facing the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities are critical to moving the City of Boston forward and by having our Boston Mayoral Candidates Forum at another time, we are giving more space for the candidates to discuss these issues.
The June 14th candidate forum will be moderated by Sue O’Connell, political commentator and analyst for Boston Pride’s media partner, NBC10 Boston/necn, and a longtime journalist in the LGBTQIA+ community.
The candidates will each be given 15 minutes during a specific time slot to address the audience via this live webinar. The speaking order will be determined at the beginning of the program through a random selection process. Audience members are invited to submit questions during the event. The forum is an opportunity to learn about mayoral candidates’ positions on policies and issues facing the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC community.
The forum is part of the virtual programming presented by Boston Pride during this Pride season. Due to the pandemic, Boston Pride unfortunately had to cancel the in-person Pride Parade and Festival in June.
Moderator: Sue O’Connell, NBC10 Boston/necn political commentator and analyst.
