JORDY and Mila Jam to Headline Boston’s Pride Festival



Boston Pride for The People Parade and Festival Takes Place June 8 


BOSTON - Boston Pride For The People (BP4TP) today announced two nationally known acts, JORDY and Mila Jam, will co-headline the Pride festival on Saturday, June 8th on Boston Common. 


“Each of these artists will not only wow the audience with their extraordinary talents and performances, but also serve as wonderful reminders that showing up as our authentic selves is a bold and courageous act that sends a message to the world that our community is still here, in living color,” said Adrianna Boulin, President of Boston Pride for the People. 


JORDY is an acclaimed pop singer/songwriter, who will be releasing his third studio album SEX WITH MYSELF on Friday, June 14. His 2018 breakout debut “Just Friends” gathered tens of millions of streams. He continued to progress from Mind Games [2021] to the critically acclaimed BOY [2023]. Huffington Post hailed the latter as “an introspective listen that doesn’t skimp on sonic joy, and Rolling Stone applauded its lead single “Story of a Boy” as “a welcome twist with lyrics that speak to JORDY’s all-too-relatable experience as a queer person coming of age. Meanwhile, JORDY not only shined on stage at festivals such as Lollapalooza, Firefly,OUTLOUD at WeHo Pride, and Bottle Rock, but he also ignited television on NBC’s TODAY andThe Kelly Clarkson Show. And during his ascent, his diaristic, authentic voice earned him nominations at the GLAAD Media Awards (Outstanding Breakthrough Music Artist), the iHeartRadio Music Awards (Social Star), and the Queerty Awards (Favorite Music Video [i get high] + Best Anthem [Story of a Boy]).


Mila Jam, a transgender star and self-proclaimed artivist is a YouTube sensation turned original pop artist who has toured internationally with the Broadway musical RENT; performed with Chaka Khan at Chicago’s Pride In The Park and alongside James Brown, Mark Ronson, Laverne Cox, Travis Wall, Jody Watley, Lady Kier (Deee-Lite) & Natasha Bedingfield.

About JORDY

JORDY is going to talk about hookups, heartbreak, sex, and love without apology. He’s going to draw you to the center of the dancefloor where the lights are the brightest and the inhibitions are the lightest. He’s going to invite you to ride shotgun on the wildest night you can imagine. Ultimately, he’s going to inspire you to live a little freer and love (yourself) a little harder.

 

The Los Angeles-based pop singer and songwriter holds nothing back on his much-anticipated third project, the independent SEX WITH MYSELF album (out Friday, June 14), and much more to come. The award-nominated pop singer/songwriter - who’s garnered praise for high-impact, inclusive, and authentically honest music - exhibits a newfound personal and creative freedom. The LP discusses hookups, heartbreak, pleasure, sex, and love without apology - and of course - being in touch with and understanding your body. Not to mention, it’s arriving in time for Pride Month. After one listen, you might just feel as good as JORDY does.
