Besides that first, our city can see transgender pride flags alongside rainbow pride flags this year. This is an important recognition of the diversity of our LGBTQ communities.

This weekend will also be the painting of rainbow crosswalks, to include a transgender pride flag.

In this century, As DC goes, so goes the nation.

The photograph at the top of this post is the only one that wasn’t taken this year. It was taken on June 11, 2016, in Washington, DC, the day before 49 human beings were massacred in Orlando for living in their identities. 

Celebrate. And, help the world learn to love better. If you’re not sure how to do that, ask someone who is lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. We’re here to help you work to be an ally 🙂 .

Enjoy the photos. More will be coming
