The Revolution Hotel, located in the heart of the South End, the city’s most diverse and welcoming neighborhood and the hub of Boston’s LGBTQIA+ community, is the perfect place to stay the month of June.


Boston Pride for The People, the two-day Boston Pride, returns for the first time since 2019. Highlights of the event include a colorful parade and festival at Boston Common and City Hall Plaza on June 10. The parade starts down Berkeley Street and passes the hotel.

Also on June 10 the Mexican bar and eatery in the hotel, Còsmica, hosts an alfresco patio brunch starting at 10:30 a.m. The menu features signature margaritas, tacos and more.


Còsmica and the hotel’s coffee shop, Kohi Coffee Co., collaborate to create the Kohi Martini, made famous when it was served at Spindler’s in Provincetown. A portion of the martini sales will be donated to the Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays Organization, which helps support, educate and advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community and their families.

Those staying at the hotel are invited to attend Chandler Street Block Party, the most famous LGBTQIA+ event in the city. The event celebrates its 35th anniversary June 10, 2–8 p.m., and guests can attend with a $20 donation.


In honor of the return of Pride, The Revolution Hotel offers a special Pride rate using code PRIDE. Travelers who donate a minimum of $10 to GLAD (GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders) get a 15 percent discount for stays through Aug. 31. GLAD works throughout the country to create a society free of discrimination based on gender identity and expression and sexual orientation.

How to Leave No Trace While Traveling

Visit any popular destination and you’ll find an abundance of one thing: tourists. While there’s nothing wrong with that — travel does, after all, bring us closer to the world around us — tourists have earned quite the negative reputation for leaving destinations worse for wear. Whether it’s a visitor climbing to the top of the temple at Chichen Itza or tourists scratching their name on the wall of Rome’s Colosseum, it seems humans are always leaving their mark on the places they visit.

Interior Upgrades Begin Rolling Out Across United Fleet

United Airlines is in the midst of a major initiative to modernize its fleet over the next several years. After first announcing the plan in 2021, planes fitted with United’s signature interior are finally beginning to appear across the airline’s narrowbody fleet of Boeing and Airbus planes. United flyers are sure to notice these enhancements from the moment they step on board: Each new or updated plane sports remodeled seats, seatback entertainment screens for everyone, Bluetooth connectivity and more, all adding up to a better experience on every journey.
