The Hornet Guide to Gay Washington, D.C.

The Hornet Guide to Gay Washington, D.C.


Even with the new administration in place, Washington, D.C., is still one of the gayest cities in the country. During the day, tourists flock to places like the Washington Monument and Dupont Circle (D.C.’s OG gayborhood) for sightseeing, and at night the city becomes a party town. With plenty of gay men to see and LGBT events to check out, gay Washington, D.C., is worthy of your next out-of-town trip.

#dctech now has a meetup for LGBTQIA+ folks


Meet Pride & Tech DC, founded by PBS developer Lindsey Dragun. Its next event is on Nov. 15.

Matt Skallerud's insight:

A new LGBTQIA+ tech meetup called Pride & Tech DC plans to exclude straight allies from certain meetings, but according to meetup founder Lindsey Dragun, that might actually help the group become more inclusive. While Lesbians Who Tech hosts sporadic meetups and General Assembly sponsored an LGBTQA happy hour last month, the 31-year-old Dragun said that #dctech lacks a group that intentionally creates an inclusive space for all LGBTQA+ individuals. Her hope is that Pride & Tech can provide that space.
