2006 Seattle Pride-- OUT and PROUD

Here comes PRIDE!!! It has gotten so big in Seattle that it is now in downtown Seattle.. Its time to get active and with the climate of our rights at stake these days ---its time to do something!! See ya all at Pride!!! Get involved!!!

The Northwest's largest Lesbian/Gay/Bi-sexual/Transgender (LGBT) Pride Parade is getting a new home this summer. The famous Parade is Sunday, June 25th, starting at 11:00 am downtown, from Westlake Park to Seattle Center, the new location of the 2006 Seattle Pride Festival.

Westlake Park will contain the official media and ADA viewing areas.
KSTW-11 will air two hours of same-day coverage from the Pride Parade on Sunday, June 25 from 6-8PM. This marks the first time the Seattle Pride Parade has been made available to viewers via free, over-the-air television. The Parade will also be seen on KSTW in the Vancouver, B.C. market as well.

Seattle Out And Proud sponsors and produces the annual Seattle Pride Parade and the Festival to commemorate three nights of civil unrest known as the Stonewall riots. These riots occurred in late June 1969 in response to official harassment by the New York Police and are considered the birth of the movement for equal rights and liberation for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people. Many communities in the U.S. and around the world hold Pride celebrations in June in memory of Stonewall. Theme - The theme this year is SEATTLE OUT AND PROUD! Use this theme to guide your Pride Parade expression. Think fabulous! It’s up to you to help make this memorable. We want you to have an outstanding March/Pride Parade experience. This is a celebration about passions, discovery, support, encouragement and just being OUT and PROUD
