Washington DC’s NBC affiliate reports:
The world is set to show its LGBTQIA+ pride in Washington, D.C., in 2025. Capital Pride Alliance announced that the District will host WorldPride from May 22 to June 8, 2025. D.C. was chosen by InterPride, an international association representing more than 400 organizations from 70 countries.
WorldPride is among the biggest LGBTQIA+ celebrations in the world, and it’s coming just as the District marks 50 years of pride celebrations.
As many as 500,000 people attend Capital Pride in D.C. every June, lining the streets of Shaw, Logan Circle and Dupont Circle for a massive parade. More than 5 million people attended the Stonewall 50 — WorldPride 2019 in New York City, former Mayor Bill de Blasio said.

Pride in DC is a manifestation of our DC values—an opportunity for people to celebrate themselves & the diversity of our community.
What better way to celebrate 50 years of Pride in DC than with the largest LGBTQ+ event in the world. See you at the pride of our lifetime in 2025. https://t.co/Jj0xftfwYD
