Nellie: “Drag Queens and DykeMarches and Bears, OH MY!”

4 06 2009

It’s just about that time in Boston.  You can feel it in the air.  That’s right, folks.  Pride Week is about to begin!

We’re so happy to be super-involved in Pride this year, starting with the Pride Day kick-off event at Faneuil Hall this Saturday.  We’ll be doing a revue-style, 30-45 minute performance that will hopefully knock the socks off the audience in a way that only the crazy, chaotic dancefest that is Big Moves Boston can.  We’ve been prepping for it for the last couple of weeks, and I’m so incredibly excited to hit up a new audience – some of whom will undoubtedly be seeing us for the first time.

On top of that, some of us are volunteering at the Dyke March, and then, for the first time ever, we’ll be marching as Big Moves in the Parade on the 13th with some amazing folks. Several LGBTQ (and allies!) dance groups in Boston decided to band together and march as one to increase our presence.  Big Moves was invited to participate, and we’re so incredibly honored and excited to be a part of this year’s festivities.  Hope to see all of you lovely, lovely folks there!!
