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.
