While we normally kick off Pride month with face painting, arts and crafts, and other exciting community activities, these are unusual times. While we cannot gather together to celebrate Pride, it is important that we let the world know that Phinney-Greenwood is a safe, inclusive, and committed to equality.
Businesses all along Greenwood will be participating in the “Hop Route” and will decorate their windows and sidewalks with rainbow images to promote inclusiveness and fun. We will list all participating venues in the days leading up to the event.
So saddle up the family, explore the neighborhood, have fun, and take a picture of your favorite Pride Display. If you post your photo to a public Instagram or PNA’s Facebook and tag with #phinneywoodpride and @phinneyneighborhoodassociation, we will mail you a free ticket to the Woodland Park Zoo to use when they re-open.
While Seattle Public Library’s Greenwood Branch has traditionally hosted this sought-after event each year, they will be hosting again this year virtually on their YouTube channel.
Join librarians, drag entertainer Cookie Couture, and a native two-spirit storyteller –all doing storytimes for Pride.
The first in a series of five will be premiering on Rainbow Hop day, Saturday, June 6, at 10 am on SPL’s You Tube channel.
About Cookie Couture:
Seattle drag entertainer & events producer Cookie Couture has gone from drag ingenue to a leading force in the Seattle drag & queer arts communities, hosting & producing various monthly drag shows and dance events, including Sunday School at Beacon Hill venue Clock-Out Lounge, an all-ages, family-friendly drag spectacle. When Cookie’s not applying a light dust of make-up to her face, she enjoys spending time with her family, hanging out with her Bulldog & laughing at her own jokes.
