WeddingWire is pleased to announce our participation in the 39th Annual Capital Pride Parade!
Each June, Capital Pride of DC celebrates the national LGBTQ community with their annual Capital Pride Parade and Pennsylvania Avenue Festival. This year, the big event will be kicking off with the Pride Parade on Saturday, June 7th! We’ll be in the Capital Pride Parade, marching alongside same-sex couples and gay marriage supporters from across the United States.
Capital Pride is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the needs of the LGBTQ community and its partners through educational events, entertainment, community outreach, and celebrations of diversity. The Capital Pride celebration as we know it now traces its history back to the first LGBT festival in Washington, DC in 1975. The tradition has continued, and only gotten stronger.
We invite you to join the Wed We Can movement by walking with us and other local professionals in the Capital Pride Parade which attracts over 150,000 spectators each year – this is a great opportunity to get involved and show your support. Register here, and you’ll get a free t-shirt!
The WeddingWire team was at Capital Pride in both 2012 and 2013 to help festival-goers learn about and join the Wed We Can campaign along with Kathryn Hamm, President of GayWeddings.com, in attendance to answer questions. Be sure to check out our 2012 and 2013 recaps for photos and other highlights!
We hope DC wedding professionals and couples alike will join us for the festivities! For more details on the Pride Parade and Pride Festival, please visit the Capital Pride website.
