Gay Pride A Family Affair For Gov. Patrick

Newly out Katherine Patrick and her father, Governor Deval Patrick, made quite an impression during Saturday’s gay pride in Boston:

Gov. Deval Patrick joined his family to march in Boston’s annual gay pride parade Saturday, days after a newspaper article was published in which his youngest daughter revealed she’s gay.

On Saturday, the Patrick family was greeted with boisterous cheers and applause as they marched to the end of the route in City Hall Plaza.

“It’s been a nice day,” Patrick said after the parade.

The Patricks marched with friends in front of a group from the AIDS Action Committee and behind a float carrying male dancers clad in bikini bottoms.

Shoot! They couldn’t bring out the ladies for Katherine? She needs to practice her game before heading off to college this fall!
