This past weekend was the Pride celebration. This weekend was the celebration of all LGBTQ and their rights but, there was so much more being brought up this weekend. Saturday, I attended the Pride parade and there was such a diversity around Dupont Circle and pride in the community. Everyone was equal and there to support each other and others were high, but that’s all the fun of going to a pride parade.
This was my first time attending a pride parade and it was so much fun! I was up front watching the parade pass by and there were so many people and organizations that support LGBTQ. There were also other rights shown on posters throughout the parade, such as Immigration and Black Lives. It was great seeing so much diversity and so many funny and fun performances and personalities.
Saturday was the Pride concert featuring Miley Cyrus and Tinashe. There were over 350,000 people! I couldn’t believe that I was there to experience this festival. There were booths throughout Pennsylvania Avenue and the concert was right in front of the capital. It was a great beautiful and hot sunny day to have this event and the energy was hot.
