Pride Walk & Rally
Sat Jun 12 2021 at 12:00 pm to 05:00 pm
Dupont Cir NW, Washington, DC 20036, United States | Washington, DC
The more than yearlong COVID-19 pandemic resulted in cancellation of almost all 2020 Pride events in DC and around the world. Now that it is becoming safer for us to once again come together as the District of Columbia (DC) officially reopens, the Capital Pride Alliance (CPA) will bring together our intersectional LGBTQ+ community to walk, celebrate, march, be visible, and amplify the rich culture of Washington, DC. On Saturday, June 12, the day that would have been the date for DC's most favorite parade, the Capital Pride Parade, we intend to hold a Pride Walk & Rally, that will be followed by the first Pridemobile Parade.
For those able to join us, we will gather at Dupont Circle at noon to prepare to walk, run, bike, rollerblade, stroll, etc. to Freedom Plaza. We will depart at 12:30 pm and head down P ST NW to Logan Circle. From Logan Circle we will head south on 13th ST and finish at Freedom Plaza for the Pride Rally. No motor vehicles will be permitted.
If anyone is unable to meet at Dupont Circle, then please depart from your own neighborhood and make your way down to Freedom Plaza by 2:00 pm. There will be a short rally with music at Freedom Plaza as we prepare to kick-off the Pridemobile Parade at 3:00 pm.
We believe that it is important to provide a controlled and safe environment for members to gather and advocate for a community that has been hit hard during this pandemic.
