DC Pride 2019!

The Vicar’s Office, along with the LGBTQIA Alliance, spent the winter raising money (and having fun doing it!) to build a parade float for DC Pride 2019. After the Mardi Gras fundraiser in March, two more generous donors came forward to help ensure the float is worthy of the Washington National Cathedral! Then, Cathedral IT administrator Tom Wright designed the specs for a replica of the Central Tower. Cathedral stonemasons got to work building the 13-foot structure with pre-earthquake pinnacles. After coats of papier-mâché and paint—along with gargoyles, a replica peal bell, and Pride flags—it will be ready to roll on June 8 at 4 p.m.

The decorating begins Friday, May 24 in the bus garage and will continue up until parade day.  If you are interested in helping us decorate the float or marching with us on June 8, please email We have limited numbers for those who can march with us, so let us know soon! If you attended the Mardi Gras fundraiser in March, you are already on the list.

We would like to thank the Washington Ringing Society for graciously loaning us their model peal bell for our float. We are also grateful to Melissa and Warner Riner for letting us hitch up to their pickup-truck and for pulling the float.  And the Vicar is especially appreciative of Tom Kim, John Olson, Amanda Hite, Julie Rodgers, Matt Klaus and Jeff Stitz for their financial gifts.  God is so good!
