After you’d gotten your dose of Deborah Cox, once the beer garden ran dry, it might’ve seemed as though Capital Pride 2012 was packing up and going home. It’s a nice thought, but not the case. Pulling off one of Washington’s largest annual events means the folks behind Pride are short on downtime.

”Since the end of the 2012 celebration in June, we’ve been meeting monthly,” confirms Ryan Bos, Capital Pride’s executive director. ”We never stopped.”
While all that work paves the way to all that fun in late spring, it also leads to new ideas – one of which makes its debut Thursday, Jan. 24.
”We will unveil the theme of the 2013 Pride celebration,” says Bos of the new January ”Pride Reveal” event, granting that some folks may have already guessed the theme. Still, who doesn’t appreciate an excuse for a party? And this one is pretty swanky, providing a beautiful view from atop the W Washington D.C., in the hotel’s P.O.V. venue.
