Gay Day at the Zoo 2022

This year the National Zoo is recognizing International Family Equality Day (Sunday May 1st, 2022) and is organizing special events and animal enrichment in celebration. Yes, you may see the Giant Panda eat a rainbow ice cake! THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

The annual Gay Day at the Zoo is a DC favorite for the LGBTQ community! For one day, hundreds of LGBTQ folks, families, and allies come together to show their pride and enjoy the animals and sights at the National Zoological Park. Fittingly the event takes place every year on International Family Equality Day and is a staple on the calendar for many LGBTQ families. This year we are excited to announce that we will be featuring programming for families and youth ages 0 – 18.

Support the work of the DC Center which educates, empowers, celebrates, and connects the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities.
