One of the nation's largest African-American Pride events, DC Black Pride takes place in Washington, DC in late May - the dates for this year are place May 23 to May 26, 2014. This is also Memorial Day Weekend, and a beautiful time to be in the nation's capital.

The several days of parties and festivities culminate with a number of key events the final weekend of DC Black Pride. Many of the events take place at DC Black Pride's official host hotel, the swanky Grand Hyatt Washington, which is offering extremely reasonable rates to participants of this weekend.

Also keep in mind that Washington, DC's Capital Pride takes place not long after, in early June (June 6 to June 8, in 2014).

DC Black Pride comprises dozens of events and parties, which have typically included several men's and women's parties, a speed dating night, town hall meetings on a variety of topics, a myriad of different workshops, the DC Black Pride Film Festival, a poetry slam, and more. On the final day, Sunday, there's a DC Black Pride Health & Wellness Expo.

Numerous Washington gay bars as well as gay-popular restaurants, hotels, and shops have special events and parties throughout Pride Week. Check local gay papers, such as Metro Weekly and the Washington Blade for details. Another helpful resource is Destination DC's official Gay and Lesbian Travel Site.
