913 U Street, NW before reno completed last year

From a press release:

“Dyke Bar Takeover (DBTO), the NYC activist group dedicated to reclaiming space for queer women-identified and genderqueer people, launches its newly minted DC Chapter with a kick-off event on Saturday, November 18th, 2017 at The Dirty Goose on U Street.

The event on November 18th aims to be the first in a series marrying activism and community building. The inaugural “Dyke Nite” will run from 6p to 10p at The Dirty Goose and showcase music from Brooklyn-based queer performer ‘DJ Andro’. Wristbands, available by donation, will provide the wearer access to $4 rail drinks and other specials. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Queer Visibility Collective, a national initiative to combat the death of queer space.

DBTO was founded in response to the rapid disappearance of physical space by and for queer women, trans, and non-binary people across the country. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

My partner and I (both ladies) are getting married this fall and my partner would really love to wear a bespoke suit – and I would love to make that happen for her. Sadly, the most obviously lady-catering, queer-friendly bespoke suit companies seem to be in NYC (namely Bindle & Keep). As we are trying to put a majority of our funds towards the wedding itself, traveling to NYC for a weekend on suit business may not be realistic.

Does anyone have suggestions or first-hand experience with any bespoke tailors in DC who are fabulous with suits for women and are also queer friendly?”

From Mervis Diamond Importers:

“I wanted to let you know about you a pop-up wedding we’re throwing today outside at the corner of 17 and K. In honor of the 7 year anniversary of legalizing same-sex marriage in DC, we’re hosting this pop-up wedding right on K Street, in the middle of our nation’s capital, Washington, DC. We’re making a statement that marriage equality is a human right and it’s here to stay!

One lucky couple is getting this wedding 100% free. They drove down from Pennsylvania when they saw our contest on Instagram.

With the help of the wedding planner, Designed Perfectly, we’ve arranged 10+ wedding vendors to participate and generously contribute their services.

It’s 6-8 pm at 1700 K Street.”
