Gay Day at the Zoo

May 1, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Pandas eating rainbow cake?! A pride of LGBTQ families?! Frogs galore?!

SMYAL is partnering with the DC Center to provide interactive activities at this year’s Gay Day at the Zoo.

The annual Gay Day at the Zoo is a DC favorite for the LGBTQ community! For one day, hundreds of LGBTQ folks, families, and allies come together to show their pride and enjoy the animals and sights at the National Zoological Park. Fittingly the event takes place every year on International Family Equality Day. The day will feature programming for families and youth ages 0 – 18, including an interactive Musical Magic Hour hosted by Little SMYALS after lunch in the bandshell! Full details on the schedule for the day coming soon.

THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. New this year– the zoo now requires you to book an entry pass. Reserving a pass is free and must be made in advance. Without a pass, you will not be able to enter the Zoo. You may reserve your pass HERE.

Registration on SMYAL’s Eventbrite is encouraged to receive updates and reminders, but does not count for zoo entry(see above). Spread the word and invite your friends! (Facebook event to share)
