June is Pride Month and as always we are ready to celebrate at The Jefferson! From parties to lectures, DC pride begins on this weekend and runs through June 14th when the annual Pride festival takes place.
If you’re looking for things to do during pride, here is a great guide for events that are going on around the city.
Some highlights of the weekend include:
Flashback Opening Dance Party
Brightest Young Things and Capital Pride have once again partnered for Flashback, this year’s Official Pride Opening Party. Located at Arena Stage in SW, this event is on June 12th and begins at 8:30pm. Tickets are available here.
The annual pride parade takes place just blocks from The Jefferson and travels 1.5 miles through Dupont Circle and 17th Street and ends in the Logan Circle neighborhood. The Parade will include more than 170 contingents–floats, vehicles, walkers, entertainment–consisting of local businesses, Capital Pride Heroes and Engendered Spirit awardees, politicians, community groups, drag queens and dogs!
