***We are continually updating this post with important information. So check back the day before the 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.
- Truck decorating and sign-making party: 6:00pm on Friday, June 7. RSVP to receive address: https://www.facebook.com/
- Meeting location: 2:00pm on Saturday, June 8 at Larry's Lounge (1836 18th St NW Washington, DC 20009). We'll meet there and then head over to our place in the parade. Please be on time (no desi standard time!).
- Attire for the parade: South Asian clothing is encouraged, but feel free to wear anything you'd be comfortable in. It is expected to be 83 degrees, so make sure you wear something that'll keep you cool as we march. We plan on bringing water bottles with us, but feel free to bring your own also.
- DJ Harsh will be spinning Bollywood, Bhangra, and more during the parade to keep us going! Feel free to suggest songs he should play in the comments section below.
