Celebrate Pride virtually with live music and drag queen performances and a webinar focused on the intersection of race and gender identity.

Spend your second weekend into June celebrating Pride, pushing for social justice and documenting your pandemic experiences. Begin Friday listening to a discussion on the history of racism in America, spend Saturday supporting queer artists following D.C.’s lockdown and wrap up the weekend contributing to a time capsule of experiences from the pandemic.

Friday

Sunday

In real time: Collecting current events

The D.C. History Center is creating a time capsule for Washingtonians to document their lives during the COVID-19 pandemic. Participants are encouraged to gather items, document on camera and create artwork that represents what their life is like during the pandemic. Use some of your Sunday free time to contribute to the time capsule – it will go down in history.
