Photo Essay: Boston Pride Day 2016

Friday April 22, 2016 was declared to be Boston Pride Day by Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh in a brief ceremony outside Faneuil Hall in Quincy Market.

Walsh was accompanied onstage by the majority of the Boston Pride roster as well as general manager Hayley Moore, head coach Bobby Jay and NWHL Commissioner Dani Rylan.

Although the day was somewhat overcast, the crowd was jubilant, as were the women and men onstage. Today’s Slapshot sent a photographer to cover the event; below are some of our favorite photos from the day.
