Gay Washington DC – Gay Star News

One fine summer evening in the American capital last month, I suddenly had the sensation I’d stepped into a TV set. (Or morphed into an Netflix algorithm, suspended in House of Cards cyperspace. Or something. Hey, it’s 2017). My point is, gay Washington DC is so recognizable that, like New York City, it feels larger-than-life, surreal; thus, it never disappoints.

Cruising through the city center in an open top bus, I was bowled over by the iconic buildings and monuments in all their polished, neoclassic glory. The Capitol Building, the The Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument, the White House: they all stand in harmony, like a perfectly polished set. I felt an urge to replace my typical tourist garb with a matchy-matchy three piece suit, tie and shirt… Washington DC is just smart. In my admiration, I answered a question I’d earlier posed to myself: is it possible to mention Washington DC without talking politics?

The short answer is yes, absolutely. Because it’s exquisite to look at and thrilling to experience – regardless of what, or who, it represents. As such, Washington DC is a true blockbuster destination, which is somewhat surprising given its modest size.

New African American History Museum Opens in DC

Smithsonian National Museum of African-American History and Culture How many LGBT items are in the new Smithsonian National Museum of African-American History and Culture and is it enough to please gay historians? It’s a tough question to answer because some ostensibly gay items may not be presented as such. It’s now widely believed, for instance, that “A Raisin in the Sun” playwright Lorraine Hansberry was a closeted lesbian for much of her short life (she died at age 34 in 1965), but to what degree does this factor into her representation in the museum, for instance? Slated to open this weekend with a ceremony Saturday morning in which President Obama will speak, the museum has yet to be assessed by the public. And curators acknowledge it’s impossible to please everyone. Descendants of the Quander family, whose roots can be traced back to slaves at George Washington’s Mount Vernon, have publicly expressed disappointment at not being represented in the inaugural museum displays, for instance. But whether there’s enough LGBT representation overall to please gay historians is yet to be determined.
