Hingham Pride Project volunteers are encouraging the community to show "a sea of rainbow" support for their LGBTQ+ friends, neighbors, and family members during the group's month-long celebration of the town's LGBTQ+ community during Pride Month in June.
The non-profit HPP works to increase LGBTQ+ visibility in Hingham, to raise funds for organizations that provide community programs and activities for LGBTQ+ youth, and to promote inclusivity among residents of all ages through community activities and education.
At the center of activities this year is the new, more-inclusive "Progress Pride Flag," featuring black and brown stripes to represent people of color and baby blue, pink, and white to include the trans flag in its design.
Progress Pride flags as well as Hingham Pride flags and vests can be ordered at hinghamprideproject.org, which also offers more details about the flag and related activities.
