Your Comprehensive Guide To Pride In Seattle

The Future of Pride here in Seattle is assured by the groups represented throughout our community. The stories of the youth and people of color in this 2016 Seattle Pride Guide bring us hope and inspire us. This second guide takes a look at sports in the LGBTQ community through the Quake rugby team; shares the stories of the youth featured on the cover; and has our first article by and for the Spanish speaking members of our community, a dialogue with local drag Queens, and many other great stories to show you how we celebrate Pride in Seattle!

Some of what you will read in this guide are stories from Christian and his unique place as a femme boy and performer, Keyada’s story of her military service while being closeted, and Mike who wishes to create youth-inclusive programs in the Puget Sound area. These great people show that our community is diverse and each of us has his or her own defining story to tell. We will also feature a story about honoring the past while charging into the future by celebrated author David Schmader. These stories and regular features like our events calendar fill this second Seattle Pride Guide for your continued enjoyment.

If you missed getting your Pride event into the official Pride Guide, no worries! Please submit your event anytime to be listed on Pride’s online calendar.
