Photo blog: Capital Pride Parade

Did you stay cool on Saturday instead of heading out to the 40th annual Capital Pride Parade? No worries. We were there to capture all of the singing, dancing, marching and rainbow outfits.

“George,” the official mascot of GW, rode in a convertible during the parade, which inspired many students and alumni to chant along to various GW songs.


Hailing from Ohio, “the Flaggots” twirled pink and blue flags in unison down P Street as part of the parade.


Capital Pride Parade enthusiasts and observers cheered on many floats throughout the day, including a decorated truck sponsored by Phase 1 dance club.

Organizations like City Dogs Rescue, Atlas Vet and Homeward Trails Animal Rescue brought along furry friends, some of which sported colorful costumes, beads, and leashes.
