Seattle Pride Announces 2017 Pride Parade Grand Marshals

For Immediate Release
Proud to announce 2017 Pride Parade Grand Marshals
June 2, 2017 – Seattle – Last December, we invited the community to help us select our Grand Marshals for the 2017 Seattle Pride Parade. We asked for local individuals and organizations that strive to create unity, honor diversity, and work towards the achievement of equal human rights. The Board of Directors reviewed all nominations and is proud to present this year’s cohort:

Anne Melle
PFLAG Seattle
Gender Justice League
Seattle Sounders FC
Sherman Alexie
Q Center – University of Washington
YouthCare

Their work has been invaluable as we advance and defend the rights of the LGBTQ community, lift marginalized voices, and strive for equity and social justice. Our Grand Marshals will lead the third largest Pride Parade in the U.S., where we expect more than 500,000 spectators in Downtown Seattle on June 25th.
