WHERE: RSVP to and we'll send you the address.
WHEN: 6pm on Friday, June 7

Only open to KhushDC members, their partners, and allies (especially ones that can do desi truck art and have fabulous decorating skills!).
  • Saturday, June 8 at 2pm: March with KhushDC at the Pride Parade
KhushDC would like to invite DC's South Asian LGBTQ community and our straight allies to the 38th Annual Capital Pride Parade on Saturday, June 8th.

The Pride Parade is an opportunity to showcase the diverse faces of the LGBTQ community and stand proudly for those South Asian LGBTQ individuals who are not yet able to be out. We stand as friends, mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters to celebrate, but also remember the struggles we’ve fought collectively to reach this right to be equal.

DJ Harsh will be spinning Bollywood, Bhangra, and more during the parade to keep us going!

WHERE: Meet at Larry's Lounge (
1836 18th St NW, Washington, DC) and we'll walk over to the parade meeting spot.
WHEN: 2pm on Saturday, June 8 (important to be on time)
