On June 10th a group of researchers set out to document Pride weekend events in Washington, D.C. Once again in partnership with the UF Center for Gender, Sexualities, and Women Studies Research, students and staff were able to capture a wide scope of events happening throughout the nation’s capital. During the first evening, researchers set out to document queer perspectives at QT Night of Healing and Resistance hosted by Resist This and Trans Women of Color Collective. The following morning, researchers interviewed the founder and several nation co-chairs of the Equality March for Unity and Pride. Later that afternoon, researchers interviewed an organizer from No Justice, No Pride, in addition to interviewing a plethora of participants in the Equality March and Capital Pride Festival attendees. As we move forward with processing the interviews we collected, we are excited to share our work with the UF and Gainesville communities through public events, as well as to share our work with an international audience through forthcoming digital humanities projects.
