DC Black Pride Is CANCELED?? Read The Press Release

As Washington, DC was placed on essential only business lockdown in mid-March, many people speculated it would last eight weeks, the perfect time for DC Pride 2020 during Memorial Day Weekend. Moments ago a crushing e-mail was sent to customers:

There is no higher priority than the health and wellbeing of Black LGBTQA community. In light of the continuing global impact and community transmission of novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) — and in accordance with public health recommendations the Center for Black Equity has made the unprecedented decision to cancel DC Black Pride 2020. For the first time in 30 years, we will not gather in DC to celebrate our community during Memorial Day Weekend.

This too shall pass. We will celebrate the 30th DC Black Pride in 2021, bigger and more celebratory than ever.

With Pride!

Earl D. Fowlkes,
President/CEO, Center for Black Equity

Kenya Hutton
Director, DC Black Pride

The Met Gala is gone. Pride is canceled. Lets bow our heads and pray.
