The Capital Pride Alliance (CPA) extends a heartfelt thank you to the hundreds of thousands LGBTQ+ community members and allies who joined us in celebrating love, diversity, equity, and equality during the Capital Pride 2024 Celebration. Your unwavering support and participation are what make these celebrations a true reflection of our community’s spirit and resilience, and why Washington, DC is so special.  

Throughout the weekend, we witnessed the powerful solidarity and vibrant energy that defines this year’s theme, “Totally Radical,” which pays homage to the activism and progress of the 1980s and ‘90s. We strive to cultivate inclusivity and positivity within our vast and diverse community, as we come together to celebrate ourselves, advocate for our rights, and inspire each other with our stories as foster a safe and welcoming space for all

The 2024 Capital Pride Theme is Totally Radical

Emerging from the discovery period of the 1960s and 1970s, the LGBTQ+ community found itself confronted by a series of social and political hurdles. The devastation of the newly emerging HIV/AIDS epidemic quickly took the lives of countless LGBTQ+ individuals, and the inaction and apathy of the mainstream medical and political institutions lead to the creation of many community-based service organizations and the birth of the radical actions of ACT UP (the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power).  The schism that had long existed between gay men and women was closed as the community banded together to take care of its own. In this new movement, the community adopted the pink triangle, a symbol of oppression in Nazi Germany, and turned it into a symbol for radical empowerment.
