Why is there no march as part of Trans Pride this year?

Trans Pride Seattle has historically held a march as part of our event. After making the difficult decision to not hold a march for TPS ’22, we were reminded of the benefits in not having any police presence at TPS (as is required by city law to hold a march) or navigate the red-tape of securing the necessary permits (which has historically sometimes been challenging for our small organizing committee). For these reasons, we have chosen not to organize a march at TPS again this year (2023). 

Can we march anyway?

We do not encourage it. Instead, we invite attendees to enjoy a nice evening among community in the park. Gender Justice League has not requested a city permit for marching, and we are not coordinating with the Seattle Police Department, as is legally required for a march to take place.
