Pride Month in Seattle goes virtual with three full days of events
Seattle’s Pride Month is going virtual for 2020. This weekend, there will be three full days of speakers, performances, and activities starting Friday, June 26.
Each of the three days is hosted by a different organization, which has taken the lead in the development of program content, offering a packed schedule of activities, performances, and sessions on a variety of topics.
The organizers of Seattle Pride acknowledge and stand in solidarity with other LGBTQIA+ organizations to condemn the murder of George Floyd, and stand against racism in all forms. A portion of this year’s programming will be focused on matters of activism and focusing on Black and brown voices.
Friday is hosted by Trans Pride Seattle+ and will include a community discussion on resistance to police violence, as well as a “performance extravaganza” from 6-10 p.m.
Saturday, June 27, is Pride Fest with an all-day live stream from 12-11 p.m. There will be a family story time, various showcases, live performances from Mary Lambert, BeautyBoiz, Xander Corbett and Purple Lemonade, Adra Boo, and a virtual dance party to close the evening.
On Sunday, the events continue with a full-day of programming by Seattle Pride featuring music, live performances, speakers, workshops, Zoom chats, and even a family art project with Sounders FC.
