SOaP announces 2010 Pride events

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Staff Writer

Seattle Out and Proud (SOaP), producers of the annual Seattle Pride Parade, announced on March 24 their collaboration with Esurance for this year's inaugural Seattle Pride Family Picnic.

According to SOaP officials, the organization is enthusiastic about the collaboration with the direct-to-consumer personal auto insurance company. The Seattle Pride Picnic is scheduled at Volunteer Park on June 13. SOaP officials say that everyone is welcome, and kids between 7 and 11 years old will enjoy a Soap Box Car installation. In addition, Esurance will have a photo booth set up.

"One of the points consistently raised by many in the LGBT community is that, other than the parade itself, Pride Month doesn't have enough family-oriented or under-21 events," said SOaP President Eric Gauthier. "The Seattle Pride Family Picnic is sure to become one of our most attended and enjoyed events. With the park setting, great food and music, Soap Box Cars, and the support of sponsors like Esurance, it's going to be hard to find a better place to be on June 13."

Additionally, Esurance has been named the presenting sponsor of "Pride Idol," the hugely popular talent search and surprise hit of Pride 2009. The event is revving up again, with preliminary auditions scheduled to begin this month.

Last year, Pride Idol was presented on Tuesday nights - this year, the competition takes place on Sundays. The first Pride Idol preliminary will be held on April 11, with the competition running for seven weeks and ending with a Pride Idol finale on June 20.

According to SOaP, winners of the talent search will be awarded cash and additional prizes and will get to ride on the official Seattle Pride Idol float in the Seattle Pride Parade on June 27. All Pride Idol events are scheduled to take place at R Place on Capitol Hill.

The 2010 "Over the Rainbow" Pride Parade will celebrate, among other victories, the passage of Referendum 71, a historic milestone that places the state of Washington squarely at the forefront of LGBT civil rights issues.

SOaP helps to connect community members, commemorate LGBT heritage, and achieve equal rights in Seattle.
