Washington, DC (May 22, 2015) – Capital Pride officially begins June 3rd and runs through June 14th hosting 12 days of education projects, concerts and great entertainment.
2015 marks the 40th Annual Celebration of Pride in the Nation’s Capital and many hotel, travel and restaurants have come out to support. In 2014 PRIDE welcomed more than 350,000 people to the Parade and Street Festival alone and this year they are anticipating even more visitors.
As a committed partner of Capital Pride for three years, Hilton has upped the ante as the Ruby Presenting Sponsor and will be the official host hotel partner for the 40th Celebration of Pride in the Nation’s Capital. The Hilton brand promises that guest feels cared for, valued and respected by setting the stage for all travelers.
Remember this? In a star-studded Hilton Beverly Hills party Saturday, Paul Katami and Jeff Zarrillo, two of the plaintiffs in the landmark case that struck down Proposition 8’s ban on same-sex marriage in California, were able to celebrate their marriage with all the trappings of a well-planned wedding day. The ceremony came exactly one year after their actual marriage.
But it doesn’t just end there with Hilton, many other great members of the hospitality and travel industry are here to ensure that Washington, DC continues to be a fully welcoming and inclusive destination.
