Port Pride Day 2016, Cambridge comes out to celebrate the Port!

Port Pride Day, an annual celebration and a coming together in the Port neighborhood in Cambridge, happened today.

My friends at the Margaret Fuller House were all there, so I asked executive director Christina Alexis for her thoughts on it all, "Margaret Fuller and the community of the Port are about love and the family." Board president Mo Gomez was flipping burgers at the grill, and he was thrilled by the turnout and the good weather, "It's been a great day and it's great to see everyone out and we're glad the Margaret Fuller House can be a part of it."

I took the opportunity snap some portraits of people in and around Clement Morgan Park. I share them with you here. Happy Port Pride Day! ...
