ABOUT TRANS PRIDE SEATTLE
Trans Pride Seattle is an annual event organized by Gender Justice League in association with local organizations who support the Seattle-area trans and gender diverse community. Supporting organizations for Trans Pride Seattle from past years include (but are not limited to) the GBSA, Pride Foundation, Gay City Health Project, and GLEAM (LGBTQ Microsoft Employees).
Trans Pride Seattle is open to everyone who believes that trans and gender diverse 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 trans and gender diverse community and those offering services directly to our community.
The goal of Trans Pride Seattle is to increase the strength of the trans and gender diverse community and our allies—both within and beyond Seattle—through increased visibility, connection, and love, and the celebration of our lives.
Trans Pride Seattle seeks to show our numbers, share our ideas, and call for an end to the violence, discrimination, stigmatization, poverty, hatred, rejection, medical abuse and neglect, and mental health pathologization that trans and gender diverse people face. We aim to increase the visibility and acceptance of Seattle’s vibrant trans and gender diverse communities by recruiting allies and engaging the wider community on trans issues while celebrating our rich diversity, strength, and beauty.
