CruiseyT, Seattle's Pride Cruise

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Staff Writer

The Spirit of Seattle, from Argosy Cruises, set sail from Pier 55 June 27 for a four-hour Seattle Pride Cruise in Elliott Bay.

Touted as "The Largest Floating T Dance on the Pacific Ocean" guests aboard the Spirit of Seattle danced to music from Vancouver DJ Zach Shore and Seattle's own DJ Brett Law with drag entertainment by Vancouver's Joan-E and Siren, plus Rositta and Nina. The boat had several bars and Buca de Beppo provided food.

"Gay Pride celebrations bring all parts of our communities together with tourism," said CruiseyT Vice President James Steck. "It's great to show the world that the LGBT community isn't going anywhere."

Steck said that financially, having Pride Festivals is a boost to the economy. This was the third year in which CruiseyT brought the floating T-Dance to Seattle. Each year, the cruise helps to raise funds for Seattle Out and Proud (SOaP), producers of the Seattle Pride Parade. Steck said the crew always has a great time putting on the Pride Cruises in Seattle and noted that the sponsors and supporters have been wonderful.

Prior to the cruise, CruiseyT hosted several socials - June 26 at Purr and June 27 at R Place - so ticket-holders could meet each other beforehand.

"The view from the boat is a great way to see the Space Needle, the city, and the sun setting," Steck said. "The cruise is a great way for locals to see the city from a different angle - plus tourists love it."

The atmosphere is very social, he said. "You can enjoy meeting people from all different areas of the U.S. and Canada. It's a great icebreaker to kick off Pride because you meet people and then see them throughout the weekend."

CruiseyT has been operating out of Vancouver for 18 years raising money for various charities. The next sailing is in Vancouver July 5 as well as three Pride cruises in Vancouver August 2-3. For more information about CruiseyT visit their website at www.cruiseyt.com.
