Capital Pride Parade 2012 [video]

Metro Weekly captures all the fun and fabulous angles of D.C.'s parade for the gay, lesbian, bi & trans community

Thousands of people lined the streets of Washington, D. C. on Saturday, June 9, to see the spectacle of the 2012 Capital Pride Parade.

Stepping off on P Street, winding through Dupont Circle and 17th Street, then finishing on 14th Street, the parade drew huge numbers of LGBT people, organizations and businesses to march — on foot and on float — as well as plenty of LGBT allies.

Metro Weekly’s videographers Todd Franson, Alex Pacheco, David Uy and Aram Vartian caught it all — see the excitement here, set to Deborah Cox’s electric performance from the Sunday Pride Festival.
