Cael, our talented blogger on the gender (Exploring Gender), will attend the DC Gay Pride Parade during the weekend!
The Gay Pride Parade of DC will take place from June 8th to June 10th.
The city's Pride festivities actually include a number of parties, gatherings and activities.
According to About, on Saturday afternoon, June 9, at 4:30 pm, the Capital Pride Parade commences in the Dupont Circle neighborhood around P and 22rd Sts. NW. From here it moves east along P Street, turns northwest at Dupont Circle along New Hampshire Avenue, cuts east on R Street, turns south down 17th Street, then rejoins P Street and moves east to 14th Street, where it makes a final turn south and ends at 14th and N Sts. NW, just north of Thomas Circle.
On Sunday, June 10, from 11 am until 6 pm, in the shadows of the U.S. Capitol Building, more than a quarter of a million people will attend the Capital Pride Street Festival, which takes place at Pennsylvania Ave. NW, just northwest of the Capitol grounds. The festival includes several stages with live entertainment.
Do not hesitate to say hi to Cael if you meet him!
