New England Revolution Supporters Celebrate Pride
For the second year the New England Revolution supporters groups Midnight Riders and Rebellion will be marking Boston Pride at Gillette Stadium.
Things get started Sunday night before the Revs’ match against the New York Red Bulls where the groups will be selling Pride gear before the match with proceeds going to the New England advocacy group Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders.
The festivities continue on Saturday the 14th as the supporters groups march in the Boston Pride Parade for the first time ever. The Midnight Riders and Rebellion will be joined by members of the New England Revolution staff for the march past some of Boston’s major landmarks. It will be the first time a pro sports franchise participates in the event, one of the oldest and biggest in the nation.
“The Midnight Riders have been looking forward to this year’s Pride events since our first successful celebration last May,” said Midnight Riders president Fran Harrington. “We believe that soccer is for everybody, and we’re excited to demonstrate that with our involvement in Pride Night at the Revolution game and at the Parade in Boston the following weekend.”
