June Obsessions: DC Pride 2022

Happy Pride Month!

We’re almost one full week into Pride and I am already feeling so joyful! For me, this month is a time of acceptance, community, learning, freedom, and self love – when everyone can embrace who they are and how they identify without fear of judgement. It’s a time for allies to show they care about and stand with the LGBTQ+ community and for members of the community to deepen our understanding of the broad range of intersectional issues that effect so many of us.

The past few years, our community has been under attack with laws and regulations aimed to “other” us or frame us as less deserving members of our rights within society. Now is a time to remember how far we’ve come, the work we have left to do, and celebrate who we are!

That being said, there’s a lot to celebrate in DC this month (and I’ve linked to celebrations in a few other cities as well!) so let’s get this party started!

Events in DC, Maryland, and Virginia:

There’s even more! Check out the full list of Capital Pride events to keep yourself busy and connected to this vibrant community all month long!

And for those note located in the DMV area, here are a few more cities with thriving Pride Month festivities happening this June:

Be sure to check out your local city/town events to see if they’re hosting a Pride Parade or celebration near you! I hope this inspires you to get out and show your support for the LGBTQ+ community this year!

Stay Proud! ❤
