Pride festivities are back!

After the Pride festival weekend was cancelled in 2020 and limited in 2021 due to the pandemic, we are delighted that the full festivities came back last weekend, as huge crowds watched the parade and attended the festival.

Pride Festival

The day after the parade, the Pride Festival took over Pennsylvania Avenue.

In view of the Capitol, people enjoyed activities such as bouncing high on a rocking bull:

One popular booth asked visitors to write messages about what they wished their younger selves had known:

On the entertainment stages, there were day-long performances, including the amazing Shi-Queeta Lee (the first drag queen to have been invited to perform at the White House).

Last weekend also saw the powerful second March for Our Lives, with student-led activists pushing for gun reforms. Our photos
