VA will be hosting a booth at Pride Festival on June 11th from 12:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in partnership with the DC Mayor’s Office of Veterans Affairs. This is free and open to the public. We will have VA representation from both the VA Central Office and the VA Medical Center at all times. Veteran Benefits Administration staff will be on hand to assist with registrations. This is also an opportunity for Veterans located in the DMV to meet their LGBTQ+ Coordinator, who will be available to ensure our LGBTQ+ Veterans are getting their healthcare in an affirming manner. Locations of all booths and vendors can be found at Pride Festival - Capital Pride Alliance but are subject to change without notice.
