SOaP board members vote to change 2010 Seattle Pride theme

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Staff Writer

On June 27, Seattle Out and Proud (SOaP) will present the 36th LGBT Seattle Pride Parade. With the second largest number of LGBT residents by percentage of population in the country, estimated around 57,900 in Seattle and almost triple that metro-wide, Seattle is home to a wide variety of LGBT political points of view. So it should come as no surprise that the controversy surrounding the 2010 Seattle Pride theme was intense. Letting bygones be bygones, SOaP has announced the official theme change of "We Are All American" to "Over The Rainbow - be seen be heard be there."

Seattle Pride is a month long celebration during June. Seattle Pride is one of the largest Pride events in the country, has no paid staff, and an all-volunteer Board of Directors.

Each year, record numbers turn out for the parade. As throngs of people line the sidewalk, the basic idea is each contingent honors the theme in their own unique way. Recently, when the first 2010 theme surfaced, it set off a social networking and media firestorm. The Internet was ablaze with members of the community demanding the theme be changed. That change came this week, as it was out-with-the-old and in-with-the-new. The theme has changed, but the event is still the same: lots of fun, important and brimming with pride.
