Capital Pride 2016 was a huge success. Thanks to our Pride planning committee, we had a wonderful float in the Capital Pride Parade on Saturday, June 11, 2016. More than 40 community members and our friends joined us to march as a contingent of LGBT Catholics and our allies — either riding on or walking alongside our well-decorated decorated 48-foot truck. We were very well-received by the enthusiastic crowds.
The 2016 Capital Pride theme was Magic — and building off of that theme, since the magic of God is LOVE, we marched under the theme of Our Magic Is Love and #MakeLoveHappen. Dignity/Washington is thankful to CUAllies for joining us and for all who made the parade a success.
On Sunday, June 12, we had a prominent position in the Pride Festival with some of the same elements with our float centerpiece being a background for selfies for visitors to post #MakeLoveHappen. All in all, it was a beautiful weekend to celebrate God’s love and the spirit of Dignity/Washington.
