12:00 AM - 11:59 PM, every day through Jun 30, 2022.
June is National LGBTQIA+ Pride Month. KNKX has compiled a list of regional Pride events.
KNKX sponsors these two Pride Month events:
Seattle Pride in the Park is June 4, 7 p.m. at Volunteer Park. After two years in cyberspace, we are back in person to celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community during Pride Month. We will begin our Family Reunion (this year’s theme!) at the beginning of Pride Month with Seattle Pride in the Park. This free-to-attend event will feature a can’t-miss lineup of local LGBTQIA+ performances co-curated in partnership with Taking B(l)ack Pride, activities, food trucks, an alcohol garden, non-profit booths and much more. Headlining this year’s event is Fly Moon Royalty, Seattle-based duo comprised of vocalist, Adra Boo and DJ Mike Illvester. The festivities will be hosted by emcees Goddess Briq House, a Seattle-based burlesque performer and Ceasar Hart, a local-favorite Drag King performer. Seattle Pride in the Park is open to all ages with family events available throughout the day including Drag Queen Storytime with Cookie Couture.
The Seattle Pride Parade is June 26 at 11 a.m. It’s now Seattle’s largest parade, and one of the largest Pride parades in the country attracting approximately 400,000 people. The parade route runs along Fourth Avenue in downtown Seattle between Pike Street and Denny Avenue, with accessibility services and reserved grandstand seating available. Following two years of virtual Pride festivities, this year’s theme is “Family Reunion” to mark the return of Seattle’s in-person celebration. Seattle Pride Parade is a free event produced by Seattle Pride, the folks who also produce the Seattle Pride in the Park, host the quarterly issues-oriented Pride Speaks community conversation events, provide grants and sponsorships to community-serving non-profit organizations and events, and advocate year-round in support of diversity, inclusivity, and equal human rights for all.
