Join the LGBTQ+ community in the historic Dupont and Logan Circle neighborhoods to experience the Pride in the Nation’s Capital 2018 Parade presented by Marriott International.

More than 200 contingents consisting of floats, vehicles, marchers, and entertainment will traverse the 1.5 mile route in support of our community. The Family Area will again be located on Stead Field, and for a second year there will be a Block Party occurring adjacent to the Parade route with a beverage garden and entertainment. Inspire and be inspired by the diversity of what makes the LGBTQ+ community…us. The Parade starts at P and 23rd Sts. NW and finishes at 14th and R Sts.

Earth Ethics Film & Speaker: “Happening” with Armando Gaetaniello, 6:30pm, Cedar Lane UU.
Join for a 6:30pm potluck supper & and a movie screening at 7pm. Hear from WES Member Armando Gaetaniello. Most Americans understand and accept the reality of climate change. For many of us, solutions to climate change seem out of reach, out of scale and fatally entwined in partisan politics. Meanwhile, the clean energy revolution is quietly underway. Electricity generated from wind and solar is increasingly more affordable than electricity generated from fossil fuels, and the growth curve for the generation and storage of renewable energy now resembles the exponential curves seen with the advent of radio, TV, and the internet. But can we meet all of our energy needs with renewable energy? This bigger question remains. In “Happening,” the director stresses the enduring power and value of a politically engaged citizenry. Questions? Text Chris Graham at 301-717-4204 or email Linda Silversmith at linsil@usermail.com. Please bring a vegetarian or vegan dish to share for 7 or make a small donation!
