TUKWILA PRIDE COMMITTEE KICKS OFF FIRST LGBTQ+ PRIDE CELEBRATION ON SATURDAY, JUNE 15

Enjoy a full day of Pride celebration from 10am through 8pm featuring live bands, DJs and drag performance on the entertainment stage along with vendors, community information booths and a beer garden at the Tukwila Pride Street Fair, 12930 East Marginal Way S., Tukwila, WA 98168. For complete details and schedule of events, visit https://www.tukwilapride.org/ or phone (425) 954-7694. Enjoy the local LGBTQ+ Pride festivities in Tukwila!

WELCOME!
On behalf of the Tukwila Pride Committee, I invite you to a celebration of community, culture, and pride as we honor prides past while establishing a brand new tradition of pride here in one of America's most diverse cities.

I am honored to help bring Tukwila this pride event because as someone who grew up in a rural town in SW Washington in the '70s & '80s, a time and place where being openly LGBTQ+ was a dangerous proposition.

I know what social isolation, fear, and homophobia in society is; remedied only by education, visibility, and inclusion.

Pride events have been held in Seattle since 1974, but change has been slow to reach smaller communities. Advocates say that only now, after federal court victories legalizing same-sex marriage and affirming other LGBTQ+ civil rights, have lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender people been able to live openly without fear of discrimination in many small towns.

Almost 50 years after New York's Stonewall Riots kicked off the modern queer rights movement, American cities are still jumping on board the ever-expanding, ever-more-inclusive tent the world knows as PRIDE!

With Tukwila being such a culturally diverse city, the time has come to bring all the corners together to forge a new future of unity and that is what we will do with Tukwila Pride.

In contrast to large metropolitan pride events, Tukwila Pride will be local; local bands, drag performers, businesses, and people. There will be food trucks, Friendz Cafe, a beer garden, and vendors of all varieties. Join us for a special afternoon.
