Tens of thousands of people swelled into Washington D.C. in June 2017 for the city's annual pride celebration. But this year, it was different. Since the newly-elected President Donald Trump took office, the administration dismantled an array of Obama-era LGBTQ+ protections. The celebration also marked the one year anniversary of the Pulse nightclub terror attack, where an Orlando shooter open-fired on a gay nightclub, killing 49 and wounding 53. For many of rainbow-clad marchers, the weekend was not one of celebration. It was one of mourning.
