The Official Capital Pride Guide holds a special place in the hearts of members of the national capital region’s LGBTA community. Each year, The Capital Pride Guide provides in-depth, moving interviews and articles highlighting local and regional residents and organizations. These stories are told through the lens of our struggles and triumphs, in an historical context, and frequently intertwine with national and international events. The Capital Pride Guide captures our shared experiences and demonstrates that our strength is in our diversity and our unified voices. We are proclaiming very clearly that the rights we’ve fought for and secured are here to stay. We will never turn back. For this reason, the Pride 2017 theme is UNAPOLOGETICALLY PROUD!
The 2017 Capital Pride Guide will include published letters from the D.C. Mayor, biographies on awards recipients, (including Capital Pride Heroes and Engendered Spirits), and information on our Grand Marshals. The Guide will also have a listing of Parade and Festival participants, Concert Headliners, and a full entertainment line-up. The 2017 Capital Pride Guide will highlight, page by page, the very diverse range of our supporters, partners, and sponsors. It will also showcase significant events and activities for the LGBTA community in the national capital region throughout the year, through the HAVEPRIDE365 campaign. The Capital Pride Guide is, as we are told, saved by many as their annual keepsake, as well as for a directory resource referenced throughout the year.
The Official Capital Pride Guide has a shelf life of more than 12 months and reaches a potential readership well in excess of 250,000 people.
