On Sunday, June 11, 2017, DJ Fusion of the FuseBox Radio Broadcast went out for a few hours in the blazing summer sun to check out the crowd, get in some cool photography and see some performances (featuring everyone from The Pointer Sisters to Tinashe to various folks from RuPaul's Drag Race & more) at the 42nd Annual Pride Festival in the Nation’s Capital up and down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC.

There was a huge mix of diverse folks in the throes of protest (mostly against the current presidential administration, with some folks talking & getting into talk change needed in long term issues in the LGBTQ community that have happened over multiple presidencies) and party (since folks need to let loose here and there during crazy times) who attended the free event of music, food, vending and then some during D.C. Pride Weekend up and down the streets, though not as active and/or hardcore has what I was told during the Pride Parade the day before.
