DCPA at the 2022 Pride Parade

More than 65 DCPA team members, volunteers and friends joined together to walk in the 2022 Pride Parade along Colfax Avenue. Over the two-day event, organizers estimated attendance at more than 525,000 — all of whom appeared to line the parade route and cheer on the DCPA truck and our enthusiastic group. When the emcee welcomed us back following our 20-month absence from the stage, the roar of the crowd was overwhelming — a true testament to the mutual respect that the LGBTQ+ community and the DCPA have for one another.
