Check out the photos of the 2013 Capital Pride Parade on Borderstan’s Flickr page.
The 2013 Capital Pride Parade took place this past Saturday, June 8. It started at 4:30 pm and lasted until 7 pm when the Capital Pride organizers float reached the corner of 14th and R Streets NW. This was the first time that the parade traveled north on 14th Street, a testament to how popular this corridor has become.
Religious groups, politicians, bars, banks, cleaning services, neighborhood associations, school associations and more were all part of the colorful party.
Dykes on Bikes kicked off the parade. There were plenty of elected officials and political candidates in the parade as well, and lots of local businesses (large and small) as well as a plethora of organizations, local and national, not to mention sports teams — and live music to boot.
