DC Center's Gay Day at the Zoo

The annual Gay Day at the Zoo is a favorite for the area's LGBTQ+ community.   This year the National Zoo is recognizing International Family Equality Day (Sunday May 1st, 2022) and is organizing special events and animal enrichment in celebration. Yes, you may see the Giant Panda eat a rainbow ice cake! THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Each year for one day, hundreds of LGBTQ folks, families  and allies come together to show their pride and enjoy the animals and sights at the National Zoo.  Fittingly the event takes place every year on International Family Equality Day and is a staple on the calendar for many LGBTQ families.   This year we are excited to announce that we will be featuring programming for families and youth ages 0 – 18.

Visit with other Rainbow Families!  Stop by our table and say hello!
