The Georgetown Neighborhood Library will host a Children’s Pride Parade in Washington, D.C., on Saturday morning, The Daily Signal has confirmed.
“The parade is for LGBTQ kids and families, signaling that their community supports them,” media relations manager George Williams said Thursday. “The event does not require registration, so we do not have an estimate of how many people will attend. The program will not include any speakers.”
D.C. police are preparing to restrict parking and close streets in preparation for the event, the 2023 Georgetown Neighborhood Library Children’s Pride Parade, put on by the Georgetown, Palisades, and Tenley branches of the DC Public Library.
Though DC Public Library lists a number of events on its website, the parade itself has not been posted online as an event. The library similarly does not appear to have advertised the event on social media.
DC Library listed events include “An Evening with Chasten Buttigieg” titled “I have Something to Tell You,” where Buttigieg, who is gay, will discuss his coming-out journey with “adults of all ages, parents, and kids.”
“Chasten’s ultimate goal is to show young people that they are not alone and to inspire them to forge their own path to acceptance,” the event description says. Buttigieg is legally married to another man, Pete Buttigieg, who serves as the United States secretary of Transportation.
On Thursday and Friday, the DC Public Library also will host events titled “Rainbow Pride Wand Take-Home Kit” for children ages 5-12 years old. These events will be put on by the Tenley-Friendship Neighborhood Library and are categorized under “LGBTQ Pride” and “Family Program.”
“Take this kit home and make a Rainbow Wand to celebrate Pride month!” the event description says. “While supplies last.”
“Children of all ages are encouraged to join and show their support for LGBTQ kids and their families,” the post said. The Georgetown Metropolitan did not immediately explain why its post had been removed.
