Seattle celebrates Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) Pride with a variety of events throughout June, culminating in the annual Seattle Pride Parade. The Seattle Pride Parade will take place on Sunday, June 29, and 11:00 a.m. on 4th Avenue in the heart of downtown Seattle, which will bring in visitors from across Washington and elsewhere.

Seattle Out and Proud (SOaP) sponsors and produces the annual Seattle Pride Parade to commemorate three nights of civil unrest known as the Stonewall riots. These riots occurred in late June 1969 in response to official harassment by the New York and are considered the birth of the movement for equal rights and liberation for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender people. Many communities in the U.S. and around the world hold Pride celebrations in June in memory of Stonewall.
