Former NFL football player Chris Kluwe will serve as Grand Marshal for the D.C. Capital Pride Parade this year.
Kluwe played for the Minnesota Vikings for eight years. He got into a tete-a-tete with homophobes about gays in sports. He is the author of Beautifully Unique Sparkleponies: On Myths, Morons, Free Speech, Football and Assorted Absurdities.
For the first time ever in our country's history, the Department of Defense will participate in a Gay Pride Parade when -- on Saturday, June 7, 2014 -- an Armed Forces Color Guard will present and retire the colors at the 2014 D.C. Capital Pride Parade.
Step-off is at 4:30 PM sharp.
