From https://transprideseattle.org:

Now in our 11th year, Trans Pride Seattle continues to honor and carry the torch of our Transcestors who originated Pride as a means of both resistance and cultural communion.

Enjoy our stage show of all-Trans talent, featuring live music, drag performances, and community speakers on community issues; our tabling fair of 100+ Trans-led organizations, community groups, small businesses, and services used by our communities; and a beautiful evening in the park among community.

In a year of mounting antagonism and violence against us — including nearly 600 proposed anti-Trans bills across the nation — spaces like Trans Pride Seattle are more important than ever. Thank you for joining us for this important celebration of Trans life, legacy, and community.

Masks are required
Respecting others' bodily autonomy — including the desire not to be exposed to virus/illness — is a basic agreement we expect everyone at Trans Pride Seattle to honor. We recognize there will always be some risk to gathering, and we aim to reduce potential harm as much as possible with the following agreements that we expect all attendees to honor:

• Trans Pride Seattle is a mask-required event (KN95/N95+ or equivalent). This means that we ask all attendees — including tablers, sponsors, volunteers, and organizers — to consistently stay masked while not actively eating/drinking in the designated eating/drinking area(s).

• All attendees are asked to test before attending and to stay home if they test positive or are experiencing symptoms. We will have a limited supply of rapid tests available for attendees with limited access to them. We also recognize the limitations of rapid testing and encourage participants to get PCR tests beforehand if possible.

We will have masks available for those with limited access to KN95/N95+ masks, and volunteers will be making the rounds to remind people of this policy and hand out masks.

If you have to stay home, don't worry — the event will be livestreamed on our YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/@genderjusticeleague3354/streams), where it can be enjoyed in real time and beyond.

About Trans Pride Seattle
Started in 2013, Trans Pride Seattle is an annual event organized by Gender Justice League in collaboration with hundreds of local organizers, volunteers, and groups who support the Seattle-area TwoSpirit, Trans & Gender Diverse (2STGD) community.

We aim to increase the strength of the 2STGD community and our allies — both within and beyond Seattle — through increased visibility, connection, love, and the celebration of our lives!

Trans Pride Seattle is open to everyone who believes that 2STGD people deserve to live our lives free from violence, discrimination, stigmatization, poverty, hatred, rejection, medical abuse and neglect, and mental pathologization. We encourage the participation of groups, organizations, and individuals in the 2STGD community, as well as those offering services directly to our community.

Trans Pride Seattle seeks to show our numbers, share our ideas, and call for an end to the structural and interpersonal violence that our communities face. We aim to increase the visibility and acceptance of Seattle's vibrant Trans communities by empowering and mobilizing allies, engaging the wider community on Trans issues, and celebrating our rich diversity, strength, and beauty.
