White shirts quickly became a kaleidoscope of colors during a Rainbow Run on Pride Day in Washington. The first Rainbow Run in Washington was held Sunday. About 50 people of all ages took part and walked through Sunset Park as colorful powder helped turn their clothing into a rainbow of colors. Organizer Blair Farris said it’s meaningful to hold such an event locally, “This is important because it’ll bring a lot of life to the community, and continue to have people feel comfortable and accepting of one another, and show that there are a lot of supports in the community.”
This year marked the 50th anniversary of the first LGBTQ+ Pride march in New York City. That march honored the one-year anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising that happened in Manhattan in 1969.
