Everyone needs a hero, and DC’s LGBTA community is rich with many people who fit this title!
Each year, Capital Pride designates as Heroes those individuals who have furthered the causes important to DC’s LGBTA community. These heroes have brought about positive changes to our lives and our community.
Each year two individuals are honored for their commitment, time and energy devoted to supporting the transgender community. They are recognized at both Trans Pride and the annual Heroes Gala.
Singer-songwriter Steve Grand will be the featured performer at this year’s Capital Pride’s Heroes Gala presented by the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. on June 3. “I am truly honored to be performing at the Heroes Gala,” said Grand. “There is a great long list of heroes to thank, not only for this year, but for the last 40 years of LGBT advancement that we celebrate this night. I’m humbled to play any role at all in this event.”
Grand became a sensation with 2013’s release of “All American Boy,” his debut single. The song became a smash, viral hit, thanks in part to the self-produced and self-financed video, which went from zero to a million views on YouTube in a matter of days, all without the help of a label, a manager, or an agent.
