On Saturday June 8, 2013, the Intergalactic Alliance organization (IA) hosted science fiction affiliated costumers to march in the Boston LGBT Pride Parade. Members of the 501st who marched were critical to Intergalactic Alliance’s successful first appearance at the parade. There was enthusiastic, remarkably friendly response from the parade attendees, and lots of fun for all involved. The IA is especially grateful to all 501st members that supported the event. Divvy Kuy (SL-7870) and Krista Carmichael (IG-1682), founded the Intergalactic Alliance as a means for different genres of costumers to march in unity at social and charitable events. Giving opportunity for fellow costumers to experience this parade was important to Divvy and Krista. As Divvy stated, “I truly believe that if people can put aside whatever preconceived notion of what Gay Pride is, they would certainly have an amazing and eye opening experience.” It was another successful mission for the 501st, and hopefully, the first of future successful missions for the Intergalactic Alliance.
