You’re invited!

The LGBTQIA Alliance of Washington National Cathedral invites you to a Crawfish Boil Mardi Gras party! This fundraiser and celebration will help raise money to build our Pride Parade float. While the WNC delegation has long marched in the Pride Parade, this year we intend to make our presence more prominent than ever by building an epic Cathedral float!
