Since its inception in 2007, Capital TransPride has continued to provide the Washington D.C. transgender community and its allies with a safe and open forum to connect with one another. The event gives participants access to receive support and services, and learn about various issues facing the transgender community.
What began as a one-day LGBTA community block party on 20th Street NW is now the nation’s third-largest Pride event, featuring more than a week’s worth of entertainment, activities, and festivities. Since its inception in 1975, the Capital Pride event has provided rich opportunities for Washington, D.C.’s queer community and allies to celebrate, motivate, and support our diversity.
