Check out the photos of the 2012 Capital Pride Festival on Borderstan’s Flickr page.
The 2012 Capital Pride Festival was a great closing day for Pride Week. While the temperatures were in the low 90s, Pennsylvania Avenue was full of people checking out the vendors, visiting the beer garden, and enjoying the performances on the main stage at 3rd Street NW.
DC Mayor Vincent Gray spoke from the main stage and emphasized that he was proud of DC for being one of the first jurisdictions in the United States to legalize same-sex marriage. Headliner Deborah Cox closed the festival with an over-the-top performance, but it was hard to forget it would be the last time we would see the DC Cowboys perform (it was the group’s last performance).
