To our Seattle Pride family, we want to share with you that Seattle Pride, Seattle PrideFest and Trans Pride Seattle have made the collective decision to shift this year’s 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 a Trans Pride Seattle survey [https://bit.ly/2Vcxmj2], which will help us determine which virtual events would be most beneficial and enjoyable for our community.
But wait, there’s more! We’re also working together with our friends Seattle PrideFest and Trans Pride Seattle on in-person Pride events to be held in late-summer, when it may be safer to resume community festivals. We’ll be sure to share these details with you too, as soon as they are available.
We are so thankful for our Pride family and partners, and for your continued support as we now shift towards creating a different kind of Pride celebration – but one which continues to celebrate diversity and bring us together when we need it most.
