Pride Surprise

Capital Pride kicks off 2013 with an unveiling

High above the District, along with the unveiling of the 2013 Capital Pride theme, Bos promises a full evening of festivities, with other news of what’s in store for this year’s event, culminating in the Capital Pride Parade, Saturday, June 8, and the Festival, Sunday, June 9.

”It’s going to be a combination of things – cocktails, mix and mingle, hors d’oeuvres – and our Pride Partners will have the opportunity to highlight what they have in store.”

Just as Washington has come to count on Capital Pride’s June events, Bos says the January unveiling may become a permanent fixture of the annual calendar.

”This is completely new,” he says. ”Our hope for the event is to get people excited for the upcoming year.” Quite likely for years to come. ‘

Join Capital Pride Thursday, Jan. 24, from 6 to 9 p.m. at P.O.V. at the W Washington D.C., 515 15th St. NW. For more information, call 202-719-5304 or visit
