Out Riders Women's Motorcycle club, an LGBTQ organization, kicks off the parade.

Paradegoers gathered near Dupont Circle to march in the Capital Pride Parade in support of the LGBTQ community Saturday.

During the parade, protesters from the group No Justice No Pride forced the parade to change routes at least twice after blocking P Street in protest of Capital Pride’s corporate sponsors for their alleged neglect of minority groups within the LGBTQ community.
