Hillwood proudly welcomes the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender communities. Join us in September for a day of festive celebration, presented each year since 2002 and supported by Hillwood’s GLBT Advisory Committee.

Marjorie Merriweather Post's tradition of opening her home to visitors for grand entertaining is the backdrop for Gay Day. Traditionally beginning with a Family Garden Party with games, picture books, and hands-on fun entertainment, breakfast treats are served on the Lunar Lawn with Rainbow Families DC. Gallery talks enlighten visitors about the collections, while performances from groups such as the Rock Creek Singers of Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington and DC Lambda Squares showcase the contributions of our community partners.
