On Sunday, June 14th, we welcomed the public to our booth at the Capital Pride Street Festival. Our visitors included nostalgic community members, undergrads seeking research sources, high school students with a passion for LGBTQ history, potential volunteers, and curious passersby.
You can find photos of the event on our Photo Journal. Check out the album titled “RHP at DC Pride, 2015.” More general photos of the festival are available in the album “DC Pride 2015.”
Some highlights from the Photo Journal, featuring our members and visitors. Thanks to Richard Haight for these photos:
