To date, Murakami is the only City Council Candidate and City Council Member that has been involved with Capitol Hill Pride.
|1:00 Pat for Seattle!
Meet your Seattle City Council Candidate Pat Murakami
Pat’s experience as a civic leader and business owner make her an ideal candidate for Seattle City Council District 3, a district she has lived in for over 40 years.
After attending the University of Washington, graduating with two degrees in Business Administration and Sociology, Pat Murakami decided to remain in Seattle and bought her first home in the Central Area. Pat also earned an MBA from the University of Puget Sound. For over 30 years she has owned and operated an IT firm which supports a wide array of industries across the region.
Pat is a dedicated community volunteer and has years of civic activism including:
In 2006 Pat founded and led an organization called Many Cultures, One Message, successfully blocking Mayor Nickels' attempt to declare all of Southeast Seattle blighted. This action would have given the City the power to force immigrant and modest- income property owners to sell at bargain prices, allowing the City to later "sell the properties to developers at a discount."
While serving on the Seattle Public Schools Closure Committee Pat fought to protect schools from closure in areas where population growth was expected, and to ensure equity for low-income students and minority students.
She will bring creative solutions to improve Seattle and tackle the tough challenges we face.
Stop by the stage and sing along to your favorite songs!

Vightingale and her Harmonium Melodica!
Vightingale is a genderqueer, genre-bending siffleur (whistler) and multi-instrumentalist. She is known around Pike Place Market for her unique instrumentation, including harmonium, melodica, kazoo, trombone, and toy piano, mixed with shakers, tambourines, and bells she wears around her ankles to keep the beat. She loves to choose diverse music to cover, including Radiohead, Lady Gaga, Tim McGraw, and more. She has her MFA in Fine Art and Sculpture from Pratt Institute and incorporates her mastery over the three-dimensional world into the way she visualizes music. This performance is a big step for her, from performing for friends at parties, to her own wedding, to busking in public, to performing on stage for you!

The creators have combined story lines pulled straight from Baum’s original texts with all-new material for characters like the Wizard and the Cowardly Lion to bring a rich history and depth to familiar faces.
While the full show includes encounters with the Kalidahs, the inhabitants of China Country, and the deadly Spider, the Seattle Pride sneak peek will focus on the most iconic characters: Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion, with guest appearances by the Wicked Witch of the West and the Good Witch of the North.

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.
