Yes, Capital Pride happens every year. But so does the Super Bowl, and we love it anyway (full disclosure: Washington City Paper is a sponsor of Capital Pride). And like the Super Bowl, Pride is getting a little more tech-savvy: Now, this two-week-long celebration of queer culture has an app. According to Pride spokesperson Missy Toms, that app displays the Washington Blade’s authoritative Pride Guide, maps, and photos. But with or without a Smartphone, attendees have quite the pick of happenings: On top of the regular nightclub events, this year brings an all-new arts fair (June 10) and an outdoor movie screening and picnic at Stead Park (June 2). Bring the family—in a city that’s allowed same-sex couples to marry since 2009, Capital Pride could be going domestic.

Capital Pride runs May 30 to June 10 at various venues. See a complete event schedule at
