According to organizers, “Seattle Pride in the Park will feature a can’t-miss lineup of LGBTQIA2S+ performances, a dance-focused stage with an adjacent alcohol garden (21+), food trucks, local nonprofit booths, queer vendors, and more.”

Family friendly events this year will include “Drag Queen Storytime, and a teen space designed and hosted by youth in a collaborative internship between Seattle’s LGBTQ Center and Seattle Pride.”

Seattle Pride states that 2024 marks the 50 year anniversary since “200+ LGBTQIA+ people gathered publicly in Seattle as an act of collective resistance.”

Their purpose was “to expel shame and to stand in defiance of those who wished to keep us hidden and disempowered.”

“This anniversary is a powerful opportunity to reflect on the unwavering resilience of our community, both living and ancestral,” states Seattle Pride.

As for the Seattle Pride Parade, this year it takes place on Sunday, June 30th in Westlake Park.
