Vice President Kamala Harris Makes History Attending Pride Parade in Washington, D.C.

Kamala Harris and Doug Emhoff are showing their support at Pride!

The Vice President and Second Gentleman joined fellow marchers at the Capital Pride Parade on Saturday afternoon (June 12) in Washington, D.C.

While marching in the parade, Kamala wore a shirt that had “Love is Love” written across it, while Doug sported a T-shirt that had “Love first” written on it in rainbow colors.

The Second Couple’s appearance at the Pride parade marks the first time ever a sitting Vice President has marched in Pride event.

Kamala briefly spoke at the event, advocating for the passage of the Equality Act while expressing her and President Joe Biden‘s commitment to advancing LGBTQ+ rights.

“We need to make sure that our transgender community and our youth are all protected. We need, still, protections around employment and housing,” Kamala said, via NBC Washington. “There is so much more work to do, and I know we are committed.”

A few months ago, Kamala became the first Vice President to receive this very special honor.
