Lisa Connell, Mother co-founder, expanded: “Curating and programming the Annual Pride Block Party is a highlight for us. With the weekend now encompassing two stand-alone shows, Braza Block Party on Friday, June 28th and Mother Pride Block Party on Saturday, June 29th, we’re excited to welcome our queer family back to the National Museum for what’s going to be our best Pride weekend to date.”
