Gender Justice League (the producers of Trans Pride), PrideFest, and Seattle Pride will co-curate this virtual event jam-packed with celebrities from Seattle and beyond over Pride weekend, dedicating a large portion of content on BIPOC voices. From musical headliners like Mary Lambert and Black Belt Eagle Scout to QTPOC poet J Mase III to hometown hero Chong the Nomad, not a second of programming will go to waste.

Schedule (via press release)

Gender Justice League will kick-off a robust three days of festivities with Trans Pride’s Friday Stage Show featuring a variety of local and national talent, workshops addressing a wide range of topics appealing to all ages, as well as youth activities and a series of trans-themed short films – in partnership with Three Dollar Bill Cinema and media partner 107.7 The End.

In addition to Mother Eyricka, J Masse II and Blossom Brown, program highlights include storytelling and spoken word exploring the trials and joys of living in a queer disabled body presented by Gina Stella dell’Assunta; and a showing of The Most Dangerous Year, an award-winning 2018 feature documentary film about parents fighting for their transgender children's rights.

Sunday (programmed by Seattle Pride):
Seattle Pride’s programming will culminate the three days with four program tracks supporting its Many Faces, One Pride focus. The programming will be a mix of live and recorded 20- and 40-minute sessions including a one-hour opening session dedicated to the Black queer community featuring a thought-provoking interpretive dance performance with a timely message from Simone Pin, as well as performances by Dion Dior Black and Danny Denial.

Other highlights include a presentation by OutRight International’s Katie Hultquist (“The Impact of COVID-19 on LGBTQIA+ Communities”) and an interview with local historian Bruce Haulman on “Vashon Island’s Little-Known LGBTQIA+ History” which inspired Vashon Heritage Museum’s IN AND OUT: Being LGBTQ on Vashon Island exhibit.

The jam-packed day of LGBTQIA+ fun also showcases virtual performances by the musical acts originally slated for Seattle Pride in the Park. Joining Black Belt Eagle Scout will be local favorites CarLarans, Chong the Nomad, Fly Moon Royalty, LatinRose, Sera Cahoone, and Stephanie Anne Johnson & The Hidogs. The musical performances will be hosted by KEXP’s Marco Collins and popular Seattle drag queens Londyn Bradshaw, Donnatella Howe and Betty Wetter.

Later that evening attendees are invited to relive the pageantry of Seattle Pride Parades with a special retrospective of past parade highlights on-air and online at 11:30 p.m. hosted by Seattle Pride’s Official TV Partner KIRO 7. Seattle Pride’s other media partners include iheartradio stations, KNKX and MOViN 92.5.
