WASHINGTON — June is Pride Month and events are happening across the metro area to celebrate and spotlight the LGBTQ+ community.

The nonprofit Capital Pride Alliance is bringing fun to the streets of the District this weekend on June 12 and June 13 with a Pridemobile Parade Saturday and a Sunday brunch.

The procession will begin at 3:00 p.m. and wind through some of the city's neighborhoods and most famous landmarks; from Dupont and Logan Circles to the Capitol. In total, the event is expected to last three hours.

Capital Pride Parade Chair, Tiffany Lyn Royster, emphasized that anyone interested is welcome to join the celebration.

"Pride is intersectional. Pride is not just a one place one person kind of thing. We happily invite allies to join us, because we know that some things can't happen without them. We invite folks who want to be out, who want to be free, who want to support; folks who feel like they don't have community, folks who have big communities and want to share themselves with folks. We stand for people who just want to be there,” she said.
