On Sunday, June 11, the LGBTQ community and allies around the United States will march in solidarity for the dignity, freedom, equality, and love of all people regardless of gender, orientation, race, ability, religion, immigration status or economic circumstance.
A coalition of Seattle-based LGBTQ organizations has taken the lead on organizing Seattle's sister march. The Seattle Pride March will begin with a rally at 11am in Cal Anderson Park (11th Ave. & E. Howell St.). The march will step off at noon and make its way to Seattle Center via E. Pine St. and 4th Ave. The coalition's stated purpose is to 'march for all people who feel marginalized, under attack, or simply not seen, heard, or known by this administration and our fellow citizens.'
