Washington D.C. LGBT-Friendly Destinations To Visit While You're Celebrating Pride

Posted: Updated:

This weekend more than 200,000 lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and their friends and family will celebrate Pride in Washington D.C., at the annual Capital Pride Festival.

Festivities kick-off with Saturday's parade from Dupont Circle to Logan Circle and on Sunday the historic Pennsylvania Avenue will host a day full of entertainment, music, food, drink, and education. Considering the president's recent endorsement of gay marriage, we can't think of a better place to celebrate Pride.

Of course, Washington D.C. offers plenty more than Pride entertainment. Be sure to explore the town a bit -- despite its reputation as a tight-laced city full of suits, the capital has a vibrant nightlife and many LGBT-friendly destinations.

Below, check out our slideshow of must-see places for the LGBT traveler, and feel free to add your own destinations.
