D.C.'s Capital Pride Parade was joyous and controversial at the same time. Read more below.
Washington D.C. couldn’t get enough this last weekend. The decision to have their traditional Capital Pride Parade on Saturday cleared the way for everyone to also participate in the Equality March on Sunday. So folks were busy all weekend, and there were probably more than a few pairs of tired feet.
The Equality March went off without a hitch, but there were some unexpected events for D.C.’s Capital Pride parade when a group called No Justice No Pride engaged in a march of their own and a stand-off/blockade that resulted in the Capital Pride parade being re-routed and delayed.
These are challenging times, but while there may have been tense words spoken, there were no arrests and there was no violence.
Special thanks to our photographer in D.C., Tom Donohue. Tom tried a new technique this year to get the coverage he wanted, and snapped away while riding a Segway through the parade route. See more about him and his work here on his site, and on Facebook.
