HRC Store History

On August 1, 2007, the DC Store moved to its current location.

Designed by French-born architect Pierre Charles L’Enfant, the Dupont Circle neighborhood saw a boon in the 1970s by a growing LGBT community. Dupont Circle was the home of DC’s first LGBT bookstore – Lambda Rising – which closed in January 2010 after 35 successful years. The Human Rights Campaign Store in historic Dupont Circle remains a place where individuals cannot only get energized, but take action nation-wide and in their hometowns.
