2016 PRIDE EVENTS CALENDAR

2016 PRIDE EVENTS CALENDAR


Compiled by Rick McKinnon
SGN Staff Writer

            FRIDAY, JUNE 24
            Trans* Pride
            Annual celebration of the Seattle-area Transgender community.
            Trans* Pride Seattle will be taking place on Capitol Hill on Friday, June 24th, 2016 in and around Cal Anderson Park. The assembly and line-up to march will begin at 5pm. The march will step off at 6pm sharp and arrive at Cal Anderson Park at 6:30pm. The Trans* Pride Seattle celebration will begin at 7pm. (NOTE: Due to changes in how Broadway is used in regards to street closures with the advent of light rail in the neighborhood, there is a strong indication that Broadway and the Seattle Central College Plaza will not be available for use as a place to gather prior to the march. Please keep an eye on the Trans* Pride website for updates in 2016.)
            Trans* Pride Seattle is proud to curate a diverse and powerful group of speakers and performers from around the United States. A few speakers from select local organizations will also be taking the stage to discuss their work and the services and opportunities they offer. In addition, there will be an information and resource fair with a wide variety of community groups and organizations doing outreach. There will also be food trucks and our beloved community out in full force!  Organized by Gender Justice League in association with local organizations who support the Seattle-area Trans* and gender non-conforming community. Details at www.transprideseattle.org.

            The 2016 Seattle Dyke March is on Saturday, June 25. Rally from 5-7 p.m. at the Seattle Central College Plaza at Broadway and E. Pine St. The March steps off at 7 p.m. to go around Capitol Hill and end in Cal Anderson Park with a rocking after-party. This year the Dykes on Bikes will lead the March for the first time ever.
            Since 1994, every year on Pride weekend the Dyke March has gathered thousands of supporters at the corner of Broadway and Pine, fighting for the visibility, inclusion, and survival of queer women in Seattle and around the world. The voices of the LGBTQ community and Pride weekend events have always been overwhelmingly male, and so we reserve our stage to shine a spotlight on the experiences, pleasures, activism, and identities of queer women and dyke-identified people across the gender spectrum. The Seattle Dyke March is not a parade; it is a solidarity demonstration in support of dyke voices and experiences, and focuses on our community’s wants, needs, and demands.
