The Washington Blade, the first LGBT publication to serve as an official sponsor of MLB All-Star Week, is excited to announce the first LGBTQ Pride Baseball Pop-Up during the festivities. The pop-up will be open from Friday, July 13 at 5 p.m. until 2 a.m. on Tuesday, July 17.
The Pride Baseball Pop-Up will provide a safe space for LGBTQ attendees 21 and older during the 2018 All-Star events and will include a beer garden and full cash bar. The pop-up is located directly across the street from Nationals Park and will give fans easy access to official events. Located on the corner of South Capitol and N Street, S.E. (1221 Vann St., S.E.), the pop-up will be the future home of Walters Sports Bar starting in 2019.
The Pride Baseball Pop-Up will host the launch of the Blade’s 6th Annual Sports Issue on Friday, June 13 from 6-8 p.m.
