BOSTON — In advance of Boston’s Pride activities this weekend, Kasey Suffredini and Mason Dunn, co-chairs of the Freedom for All Massachusetts coalition, issued the following statement:

“LGBT people across the country continue to face attacks and potential rollbacks of rights, including here in Massachusetts, where a 2018 ballot measure could strip transgender people of crucial protections from discrimination. This Pride, it’s more important than ever for us to come together, be visible, build community, and tell our stories in order to create better understanding about who we are. This is how we grow support for our freedom and equality, it’s how we won marriage for same-sex couples, and it’s how we’ll uphold transgender equality in the Commonwealth next year.”

Thousands of LGBT people and allies are expected to participate in marches in Boston and in nearly 100 cities across the nation this weekend.

Freedom for All Massachusetts is the ballot committee working to defeat a 2018 ballot initiative that would repeal existing nondiscrimination protections for transgender people in public places like restaurants, retails shops and hospitals, and ensure that Massachusetts continues to be a national leader on equality and fairness for all.
