- New Organization and Logo
The Directors are encouraged that this year's permitting will go smoother as the last two years saw permitting denial for a second day and severe restrictions which resulted in a decreased attendance at the 2017 festival under former Mayor Ed Murray favoring other Pride events during his re-election campaign.
The Capitol Hill Pride Festival has grown to become the Northwest’s largest Pride street festival since 2009 and Capitol Hill’s largest Constitutionally protected annual event since 2013.
Development on events, registration and stage schedule will be announced on the website.
The new Capitol Hill Pride logo is a black/white unicorn reflecting the colors of the Pride flag including pink representing the large diversity of the community.
Capitol Hill Pride is confident in the many restaurants, businesses non-profits and artists in promoting the LGBTQAI cause whether it’s through their art, business or personal expression and support of the community all year long.

Stonewall, Never Forget
The Stonewall riots were a historical
turning point in LGBT rights. Often compared to the civil rights
turning point of Rosa Parks, the riots took place on June 28,
1969, at the Stonewall
Inn in New York City when
and youth stood up against harassing police raids and arrests
for being gay which were common at the time. Photo
from The New York
Photo from The New York Daily News,Sunday, June 29, 1969
Legend has it that the raid was started by a simple penny being thrown at a police officer.
Today, Pride marches and parades are held around the world at the end of June commemorating the anniversary of the riots. Communities such as Capitol Hill in Seattle have become neighborhoods where bars, restaurants and businesses have become safe places for gays and lesbians to be open about their sexual orientation without fear of being arrested or harassed.
In modern times ongoing inequality, basic human rights and international persecution underlines the need for persons and businesses to demonstrate their support for the LGBT community and today what has become known as Pride.
