Braden Holtby marches in Capital Pride Parade for third time: ‘If you can change one or two lives, it’s worth it’
Braden Holtby once again showed his support for equality in sports and the LGBTQ community on Saturday as he participated in the 2019 Capital Pride Parade in DC on Saturday. This is the third year that the Capitals starting goaltender has participated in the parade.
Hundreds of thousands of participants lined the streets of DC as the parade wound from Dupont Circle to U Street. Holtby tossed pride-themed Capitals shirts and beads from the Monumental Sports & Entertainment-sponsored float, joined by members of You Can Play and Monumental employees carrying rainbow-painted Weagles. Caps in-game announcer Wes Johnson and Caps anthem singer, Bob McDonald, also walked in the parade.
