White Center hosts its first ever LGBTQ+ Pride June 5-9

What began as an idea between 2 friends having a drink at The Lumber Yard Bar has turned into a full-blown Pride celebration in White Center. Recently, White Center has become a popular destination for the Seattle area LGBT+ community. 'There has been a lot of talk that White Center is becoming the new Capitol Hill. But we're not looking to be the new Capitol Hill. We want White Center to be White Center. We just want more people to be able to experience it.' a spokesperson said. The 5-day event incorporates long-time established businesses with newer bars and restaurants.

Official Kickoff
The festivities will kick-off on June 5 at 7pm with a Pride Flag raising at Triangle Park (16th Ave SW & SW Roxbury St) in the heart of White Center. Christine Spencer, from Mac's Triangle Pub (9454 Delridge Way SW), will raise the flag. Spencer, a well-known and respected figure in White Center, was the obvious choice to lead the ceremony. The Triangle Pub has long been known as a place that is welcoming to the LGBTQ+ community. Following the flag raising, Southgate Roller Rink (9646 17th Ave SW) will host Pride Skate Night. Southgate has offered a monthly Pride Skate Night for several years. What started as a small event has created a cult following that draws a higher number of skaters each month.

Continued Celebrations
The remainder of the celebrations will occur at various bars and restaurants. There will be a BBQ & Drag event at Drunky Two Shoes BBQ (9655 16th Ave SW) on Thursday, June 6. The show will feature the Rat City Queens. Friday night will include The Swallow Bar (9608 16th Ave SW), the newest gay bar in the neighborhood, and a swimwear themed party at the Lumber Yard Bar (9619 16th Ave SW). The Lumber Yard opened in January of 2018 and has been extremely popular, known for its friendly staff and creative event nights.

The weekend will round out with karaoke at Mac's Triangle Pub and a main event party at The Lumber Yard on Saturday night; and a Sunday Funday Gay Pride Fair at Future Primitive Brewing (9832 14th Ave SW) which will feature local vendors. The celebration will wrap up with a Sunday afternoon tea dance at The Lumber Yard. The goal is to grow Pride over the next few years to offer a street fair and include more of the local businesses. There has been a large amount of positive feedback from the neighborhood and interest in future involvement. Volunteers and businesses can still get involved by emailing info@whitecenterpride.org.
