The Board of Seattle Out & Proud (Seattle Pride), in collaboration with Seattle PrideFest and Trans Pride, have made the collective decision to shift our 2020 annual Pride celebrations to a series of virtual events. The decision was made out of an abundance of caution – and concern for our community’s health – after conferring with local public health officials and the City of Seattle.
Although we are all disappointed that we won’t be together at this year’s Seattle Pride Parade and Seattle Pride in the Park, we will have the opportunity to celebrate during a series of virtual events this June (to be announced early next month). In the meantime, we’re asking for your help in taking the survey that Trans Pride created and linked below, which will help us determine which virtual events would be most beneficial and enjoyable for our community: https://bit.ly/2Vcxmj2
Seattle Pride takes place every June as part of the larger “Seattle Pridefest” which includes a week long series of circuit parties, BBQs, live performances, cultural activities and of course the main parade which takes place on the last Sunday of the event.
Seattle, the Pacific Northwest’s largest city has been a longtime center of LGBT activism. One must-attend event throughout the weekend is the Seattle Capitol Hill Pride Festival March & Rally, a massive community event right in the heart of the city’s main GLBT neighbourhood, on a six-block stretch of Broadway. It features food, music and entertainment (from DJs to bands) on multiple stages, a block party, a Paint For Pride Artwalk along Broadway, a Doggie Drag Costume Contest, and more than 100 vendors from local businesses and organisations. This big celebration drew more than 25,000 participants last year.
The Official Seattle Pride Parade is held on the final Sunday of the week long festivities and begins at 11 am at the corner of Union Street and 4th Avenue. It lasts until around 1:30 pm and runs north along 4th Avenue to Denny Way.
Dont miss, Seattle Pridefest at the Seattle Center, which takes place from noon until 8 pm in the shadows of the iconic Space Needle. It is the largest free Pride festival in America.

The gay village of Seattle is located in the centre of Capitol Hill. It’s a charming historic area where the epicenter of the city’s gay bars and clubs are located. There are several venues in town specifically catering to a gay clientele. Nightlife is centered on the Pike/Pine corridor. Madison Park Beach on the north section is also Seattle’s unofficial gay beach.
