Boston Pride Fashion 2015

Rupi here ... Given' you the low down on Boston Pride.

Ok let's be honest — for the artsy queers the real juice of Boston Pride lies in the fashion performance of us Qwears. Fashion performance is basically just being yourself and performing your queerness like you do everyday. That said — I was drooling at Boston Pride this year!! The soft colors of floral fought with the sharp dapper styles underneath the early summer heat. I found myself immersed in Boston Pride. 

 Here are some of the fashion performances that Sonny and I managed to capture. #QwearDrool @BostonPride
