And, I do mean SHAMELESS!  Many people in Boston don’t realize that DotOUT was founded over 10 years ago. As originally envisioned, the early Dorchester LGBT residents formed DotOUT as a way to create dialogues and bridges between groups, neighbors and communities within Dorchester, Massachusetts.

The not-for-profit group continues to be run entirely by unpaid, totally devoted and, most times, sleep-deprived volunteers who truly love and believe in all the wonderful neighborhoods that make up ‘the Dot’. We’ve grown over the years and have made an impact on our neighborhood.

We have been welcomed warmly and have marched proudly in 11 Dorchester Day Parades. The Dorchester Day Parade Committee has made us feel at home amongst our neighbors and friends.
