Capitol Hill Pride

The newly formed Capitol Hill Pride non-profit is planning a series of activities for June Pride Month. Non-profits and other Capitol Hill businesses will be displaying Pride stickers and be included in the Capitol Hill Pride online listing events and LGBTQAI support.

The focus of Capitol Hill Pride this for 2018 will be “Cause over Commerce” as we continue organizing the Northwest’s largest Pride street gathering in the heart of Seattle.

The month will culminate with the Capitol Hill Pride March & Rally starting at 10am -4pm on the campus of Seattle Central College which will feature speakers and non-profits and the Capitol Hill Doggie Drag Costume Contest at Noon.
