Gay Pride Group Celebrates Supreme Court Ruling On Marriage


Gay rights activists in western Massachusetts continue to celebrate the Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage. 

Springfield Pride held a rally Thursday for  people to talk about what the court’s ruling means for them personally and for the gay rights movement in general.   The openly-gay mayor of Holyoke, Alex Morse said the court sent a powerful message, especially to young people, about equal rights.

Amaad Rivera, founder and president of Springfield Pride said  nothing feels better than..justice.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
