Dignity Seattle donates $700 to Official Pride ASIA

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

Dignity Seattle, the local chapter of DignityUSA, a religious group celebrating the wholeness and holiness of LGBT Catholics, announced this week that they will be donating $700 to Official Pride ASIA, the organization that produces the annual Rice Ball and Pride ASIA events.

Delia Vita and Paula Lavallee of Dignity Seattle told Official Pride ASIA's Founder and Co-Director Aleksa Manila and Co-Founder Arnaldo! Drag Chanteuse their organization raised the money at Dignity Seattle's 26th Annual Pride Week Breakfast, June 28, held at Central Lutheran Church (1710 11th Ave).

Guests at the breakfast purchased $7 tickets for the all-you-can-eat breakfast and a raffle for prizes. Dignity members and the general public participated in the fundraiser, which also benefited Lifelong AIDS Alliance and DignityUSA's annual convention - being hosted in Seattle in 2015.

Lavallee is the current Dignity Seattle President, as well as a member of the National Convention Committee. Vita is Dignity Seattle's Treasurer.

'It is with our deepest gratitude that we gladly accept your generous donation,' Aleksa Manila thanked Dignity Seattle in a letter upon learning of the donation. 'Your generosity will help ensure our organization's mission will continue to prosper in our communities.'

Pride ASIA is comprised of out and proud LGBTQ Asian American/Pacific Islanders in the Seattle and Northwest Region including respected individuals and organizations with rich histories in health advocacy, human rights, social service, political activism, arts and entertainment. Pride ASIA is a proud member of Social Outreach Seattle and The National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance. Founded in 2012, Pride ASIA's mission is to celebrate, empower and nurture the multi-cultural diversity of the LGBTQIA communities through the Asian-Pacific Islander American lens. Learn more at www.prideasia.org.

According to the group's description, Dignity Seattle 'provides a safe environment for people to reconcile our God-given gifts of sexual orientation and our Catholic faith through Gay-affirming liturgies. Being part of the Dignity Seattle family means claiming ownership of our faith and living up to the responsibilities of that ownership.'

Dignity Seattle meets second Sundays at 6 p.m. for liturgies and prayer services at Ravenna United Methodist Church (5751 33rd NE). More information is available at www.dignityseattle.org or by emailing Dignity Seattle at Dignity.Seattle@gmail.com.
