Macy’s Metro Center and the Washington Blade have teamed up to celebrate more than four decades of the Blade’s coverage of LGBT life in Washington. The windows that face 12th and 13th Streets have been dressed with three massive 5 foot by 7 foot blown up photos spanning Blade coverage of Pride and other major D.C. LGBT events.

The new windows were unveiled Tuesday at the Macy’s store to kick off Pride. The Washington Blade will be unveiling more 5’x7′ historic photos on our Pride float on Saturday. Come take a look at all eight of our beautiful restored Pride archive photos on the Blade float and at the Washington Blade booth at Sunday’s festival.
