2014 Seattle Pride Poster Released

Seattle Pride, the organizers of the 2014 Pride Parade and other Pride Month events, announced the release of this year's official Seattle Pride earlier this month. The flyer is a recreation of the poster from Seattle's first Pride, held in 1974. Originally drawn by Joseph Velez, the 2014 poster was traced from the original by artist Brian Donahue of Seattle.

2014 Pride aims to celebrate the history of the Northwest's LGBTQ rights movement and advance the ongoing progress the LGBTQ community has made since first coming out in 1974, the year of the inaugural Seattle Pride festivities.

The 2014 poster features the schedule for 2014 Pride, with events including Trans*Pride, the Pride Parade and PrideFest. The poster and other official Seattle Pride merchandise is available for purchase at pride events and at seattlepride.org.

The poster was created as a tribute to the organizers of the original Seattle Pride events, which culminated in a dance-in held at the International Fountain in Seattle Center. The original poster, which features hand-drawn illustrations and a schedule of events, was printed on the reverse side of repurposed federal price control posters donated by a Queer-owned print shop then operating on Capitol Hill.

The poster is a tangible tribute to the courageous LGBTQ activists who took the first proud steps out of the closet in the early days of the Queer movement.


Seattle Pride is a non-profit organization based in Seattle, WA, focused on informing and educating the community on LGBT issues through community outreach and produced events.
