This year's Capital Pride Interfaith Worship Service will take place on Tuesday June 5th at 7:30 PM at Luther Place Memorial Church, 1226 Vermont Avenue NW Washington DC 20005.
The guest speaker will be Dana Beyer. Dr. Dana Beyer has always been immersed in politics and social change. Growing up in New York City with her social conscience formed by traditional Jewish ethics, most of her strongest childhood memories and emotional milestones were formed by our nation's most courageous leaders. As a child, Dana was inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement of the 1960's. She remembers President Kennedy's ringing words during his Inaugural Address, "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." It was Robert Kennedy's candidacy for President during Dana's sophomore year in high school that spurred her to take action and to become part of the political process.
The service will feature a performance by the Rock Creek Singers. Rock Creek Singers is a select, spirited, chamber ensemble of the Gay Men's Chorus of Washington, DC that performs a growing repertoire of a cappella and accompanied classical and contemporary music for audiences throughout the national capital region.
