WHEREIN: We bring you the developments (happening in and around DC) that we think are newsworthy, or, at the very least, almost newsworthy…

  • D.C. residents are getting irritated by pop-ups. No, not the fun kind that serve fun food and coffee. The gross tall building kind. [via Washington Post]
  • Do your civic duty in your pajamas and tell the D.C. Council what you want without even leaving your couch. Sit in on a public hearing Monday at 11am through the “Madison D.C. Collaborative Platform,” an online forum, and submit questions and suggestions until July 8th. [via NBC Washington]

  • Reverend Dr. Cameron Partridge became the first ever openly transgender priest to preach a sermon at the Washington National Cathedral. The event was part of the church’s gay pride month celebration. [via WAMU]
