Marriott International joins with D.C’s The House of Garçon and Dashaun Wesley for their Capital Pride 2023 celebration. Honoring the origin story of Ballroom Culture as havens for Black and Latinx members of the LGBTQ+ community, “The Ballroom Is Open” is an extension of Marriott’s long standing LoveTravels platform. Marriott is celebrating, honoring, and amplifying an essential space in the LGBTQ+ community for self-expression, community, and belonging.
The trio celebrated this Capital Pride with a float that will not only highlight D.C.’s iconic ballroom house but have video screens that will offer the first look at Marriott’s new “The Ballroom is Open” campaign featuring House of Garçon
The House of Garçon is an international organization founded on fraternity, education advocacy and professional growth. The Garçons dominate in the arena of Ballroom while encouraging members to be responsible, engaged members of the community.
