LGBTQ Activists Blockade DC Capital Pride Parade over corporate sponsorship (Video)

LGBTQ Activists Blockade DC Capital Pride Parade  Saturday June 10 over corporate sponsorship (Video) but not met with much enthusiasm from the crowd watching from sidelines.

The D.C. Capital Pride Parade was disrupted by protesters who say the event is too corporate and marginalizes minorities and the very community the tradition was created to celebrate.

“Capital Pride is a sham, corporate scum don’t give a damn,” one person posted on Twitter with the hashtag #NoJusticeNoPride.

Police formed two lines around the group and allowed them to continue protesting while the parade was rerouted down 16th Street toward Rhode Island Avenue.

No Justice No Pride is an ad-hoc collective of organizers and activists from across the District of Columbia.
