Members of the community came to see local businesses, artists, performers and politicians. Performers included the Ladies of Town, X Factor and Tom Goss. D.C. Council Chairman Vincent Gray was joined on the stage by openly gay D.C. Councilman David Catania and longtime LGBT civil-rights advocate, Frank Kameny.
