If you're going to the National Equality March or live in DC, I'd like to invite you to a very special Bilerico Project blogger meetup - it'll be my birthday party too! The Helix Hotel is an awesome venue for a meetup/party; it's one of DC's hippest hangouts for young professionals, politicians and celebrities. There will be a bar but you don't have to be over 21 to get in!

Helix Hotel Lounge
1430 Rhode Island Avenue NW - Washington, DC
Friday, October 9 from 7pm - Midnight

When I logged online, the welcome screen also prominently featured the LGBT guest program and all the usual demographic questions were even LGBT friendly. Coming from Indiana where very few businesses tout their LGBT friendliness, this meant a lot to me.

If you haven't booked your hotel room yet, I'd highly recommend one of Kimpton's 7 DC properties. If you decide to book with them, use the discount code "LGBT" to get 15% off and a $20 daily dining credit. (We're not making money off any bookings and Kimpton didn't pay for this post, btw. It's a serious endorsement.)

If you're the type who insists on bringing a present, please make a donation to Maine Marriage Equality for whatever you'd spend - the fun of seeing all of you will be enough for me. After all, how many people get to celebrate a birthday with a few hundred of their closest friends?

Bring a friend and say hello to contributors and readers! Feel free to pass along the invite.
