The first Seattle Pride Parade – a march of less than 200 people – took place in 1974, although it wasn’t officially recognized by the city. Today, the Seattle Pride Parade is the fourth largest in the country, attracting an estimated 500,000 members of the LGBTQIA+ community, friends and allies. The Parade provides our entire community an opportunity to celebrate the present, envision the future and honor our past.
Seattle’s LGBTQIA+ Pride Month is going virtual with three days (June 26-28) of solidarity featuring speakers, performances and activities courtesy of Gender Justice League, PrideFest, and Seattle Pride.
The three organizations, producers of Seattle’s largest Pride Month events – including Seattle Pride Parade, PrideFest at Seattle Center, Trans Pride and Seattle Pride in the Park – have joined forces to bring together elements from their respective events, plus new interactive offerings, in a virtual format at www.TogetherForPride.org.
