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.
The organizers wish to acknowledge and stand in solidarity with other regional LGBTQIA+ organizations to condemn the senseless murder of George Floyd, standing together against racism in all forms. The LGBTQIA+ community knows firsthand the feeling of marginalization, and the importance of compassion and standing together – especially in this time of need. As with other impactful movements, the LGBTQIA+ movement also began with a protest. Much of the Virtual Pride programming will be centered on matters of activism and centering black, brown and indigenous community voices.
