DISABILITY JUSTICE IS PART OF OUR WORK

We recognize disability justice as a major part of our intersectional work, and strive to create spaces that can be enjoyed by our Disabled and immunocompromised community members. To ensure Trans Pride is a safe event that our whole community can enjoy, please familiarize yourself with this important safety and accessibility information.

COVID SAFETY & MASKING REQUIREMENT

Masks will be mandatory: To make sure our event is accessible for all, and to reduce the spread of COVID-19, all attendees are asked to stay masked at Trans Pride. We will have masks available for those with limited access to N95/K95 masks. (If attendees are able to bring extra masks to contribute, we would be grateful and appreciative!)

Please test before attending, and stay home if you test positiveWe 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.

MONKEYPOX SAFETY

To limit the spread of monkeypox in our community, we request that people familiarize themselves with how the virus spreads and the risks associated with exposed skin and close skin-to-skin contact in community spaces.

We can help keep each other safe from both monkeypox and COVID by maintaining personal space, wearing an N95/KN95 mask, wearing clothing that covers a majority of our skin, and limiting close intimate contact with other people’s exposed skin.

For more information about monkeypox and vaccine availability, please see King County Public Health’s page.

SEATING, ASL, & WHEELCHAIR ACCESS

  • Limited seating will be available in front of the stage for those who need it

  • ASL interpreters will be present for the stage program and performances

  • Wheelchair access: Volunteer park is on a slight incline. Wheelchair-accessible entrances and exits are marked on the map. 

SPOONS TENT

The Spoons Tent is a scent-free, low-sensory space located away from the stage. Drop by to relax and recharge with snacks, water, and stim toys (disinfected between use), or to chat with one of our volunteers experienced in providing emotional and mental health support.

We ask that visitors please stay masked, sanitize before entering and leaving the tent, try to stay 6 feet away from others, and keep conversations at a low volume. (In order to limit the spread of monkeypox, we will not have weighted blankets, as in years past).
