“It seems like we just ended the 2015 Pride season but it’s time to kick off the 2016 Celebration,” said Bernie Delia, President of the Board of Directors of the Capital Pride Alliance.  “The LGBTA community saw tremendous advances in 2015. We want to make sure that we don’t lose that momentum in 2016.  We plan to keep the DC-area LGBTA community involved and engaged in the fight for equality. And having some fun along the way doesn’t hurt.”

“We want to extend big thanks to SAX for hosting and presenting this year’s Pride Reveal,” said Ryan Bos, Executive Director of the Capital Pride Alliance.  “Attendees can indulge their senses in specialty cocktails, hor d’oeuvres, sweet treats, and over-the-top atmosphere while enjoying SAX’s amazing performances, music by Aaron Riggins and Ed Bailey of TRADE, Number Nine and Town, and some special raffle prizes.”
