Scenes From D.C. Pride Weekend 2017

by Christie Grimm · June 13, 2017

Who doesn't love a good rainbow? This past weekend, thousands hit the capital for the Gay Pride Parade. Amongst the hoards of participants showing up to prove Love Trumps Hate, was our forever favorite guy about town, Joey Zauzig, who flew his New York tush down to DC to take his spot on The Points Guy float, which supported the amazing charity, Rainbow Railroad. Their mission? Helping persecuted LGBTQ individuals from around the world find their way to safer countries, providing information, connections, travel support - even airfare. It's illegal to be gay in over 75 countries. And in 5 of them, it's an offense punishable by death. An unfortunate, important reality to remember, especially in times of celebration.

Flip through for an inside look at Joey's whirlwind weekend.
