There are a wide variety of events happening June, LGBT Month, but two parades are coming up this Sunday that are certainly worth checking out.

With the hope to honor the victims of last year’s shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Washington, D.C. will host the Equality March for Unity and Pride on Sunday, June 11. The march is also meant to fight for LBGT inclusion, access, and justice.

The march will be hosted across the world, from Switzerland to Canada to Spain. In the U.S., everywhere from Albany, New York, to Boston, Massachusetts, will celebrate the march as well.

In D.C., the march will begin at 10 a.m. and end at 2 p.m. From 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., I Street NW between 14th and 17th streets NW will be closed.

Below, take a look at the march’s route.

On the same day, the Capital Pride Festival will also be held on Pennsylvania Avenue NW between 3rd and 7th streets NW. Festival exhibit hours are between 12 p.m. and 7 p.m. with street closings set to begin at 5 p.m. on Saturday and continue through 2 a.m. on Monday.
