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 gays and youth stood up against harassing police raids and arrests for being gay which were common at the time.

Pride events are considered civil rights events because they commemorate the Stonewall Uprising of 1969, which was a response to discriminatory laws and practices and was influenced by the Civil Rights Movement. 


Legend has it that the raid was started by a simple penny being thrown at a police officer.
For 2024 the Capitol Hill Pride March will start with a symbolic penny toss.

1969 Penny

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.

Safety Information

From SPD and the Seattle Police LGBTQ Advisory Council

The Power to Protect Yourself
What you can do about hate crimes
  • Physically protect yourself first. Defuse the situation if possible. Do not respond to taunts. Walk away, don't make yourself vulnterable.
  • Call 9-1-1 immediately, Police need to know about hate crimes. State you are reporting malicious harassment RCW 9A.36.080 or SMC 12A.06.115 (see below).
  • Note the physical descriptions of the perpetrators in as much detail as possible.
  • Write down everything that was said and done, the time and location.
  • When you report the incident to police, request case number for future reference.
  • I you know the perpetrators, contact the court for information about obtaining a no-contact/anti-harassment order.
  • If you see something, get involved. Be a witness if someone else is a victim.

Active Shooter Training
ABC - A-Avoid, B-Barricade, C-Combat.
Know beforehand your exits at any event or venue.

The Definition of Hate Crimes
Although the term, "Hate Crimes", is the most frequently used term throughout the U.S., the true definitions may differ depending on the jurisdiction and/or state you reside in.  In the State of Washington, the correct term is Malicious Harassment.

In Seattle, there are three bias-related categories that are documented on police reports Malicious Harassment, Crimes with a bias Element, and Bias Incident. 

Malicious Harassment encompasses verbal and/or written threats of assault, robbery, property damage, or actual assaults, property damage, robbery, etc., primarily directed at the victim because of the suspect's perception of the victim's race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, religion, or any other factors listed by law which is the primary reason for the threats, assaults and/or property damage and a report should be made.  Call 911 immediately and advise the dispatcher of what happened, you believe it was bias or a hate crime what was said and done, any injuries you have, and a description and direction of travel of the suspect(s).  If safe to do so, remain at the scene until police arrive or notify the 911 operator of your new location.  State law: RCW 9A.36.080  or Seattle Municipal Code: SMC 12A.16.115

Crimes with Bias Elements occurs when the victim is threatened, assaulted, robbed, has their property damaged, etc., by a suspect when, during the commission of the crime, any comments are made directly and/or indirectly that relate to the suspect's perception of the victim's race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, religion, etc. that appears to be a secondary motivation for the crime.  The victim should follow the same protocol in calling 911 and reporting the incident. 

Bias Incidents are non-criminal situations that do not fall within the above-listed categories, where a subject uses/directs offensive words at an individual and/or group during constitutionally protected free speech that the recipient(s) considers offensive AND does not accompany those words with direct threats and/or actions.   You do not need to know what category your incident belongs in to report a hate crime.
Call 911 if you are the victim of a crime.

PRESS RELEASE
8/21/2023

For immediate release

 

Capitol Hill Pride requests the immediate removal of Seattle LGBTQ Liaison Officer Dorian Korieo.

On June 5 of 2023 Capitol Hill Pride requested to the City of Seattle and SPD the removal of Officer Dorian Korieo from his position as LGBTQ Liaison within SPD for violations of safety, violating Pride event bans of uniformed officers, misconduct and failure to perform duties as a liaison. The City of Seattle and SPD to date have not responded to this request.

Capitol Hill Pride was incredibly disappointed to hear by his own admittance that SPD LGBTQ Liaison Dorian Korieo was the very officer who defied the uniformed police ban at the Seattle Pride Parade in 2022 resulting in an OPA and continues to excuse the actions of five other uniformed officers who defied and verbally challenged the Capitol Hill Pride ban of uniformed officers in 2022 on the same OPA.

Capitol Hill Pride feels that Dorian Korieo is not fit to be a community Liaison, we have no confidence in his efforts and feel he should be removed from this position. We encourage SPD and the City of Seattle to appoint another Liaison, an officer who can respect community and develop other avenues of community outreach to improve public confidence.

 

The LGBTQAI community and the public deserve better.

 

History
Capitol Hill Pride had filed a complaint against Officer Dorian Korieo OPA case number 2023OPA-0001 for failure to provide traffic control for the 2023 annual Capitol Hill Pride March as outlined in Seattle Municipal Code
11.25. and for failure to schedule traffic control for last year’s Capitol Hill Pride 2022 march. 
By not respecting the ban by Pride organizations, openly defying requests in whichorganizers hope to create a safe space and non-conflict areas for attendees, by refusing to mediate a meeting with these officers and excusing their misconducton duty by stating “officers shop all the time”, failure to respond to Capitol Hill Pride’s request for SPD contact and traffic safety escortin 2022 and 2023 this year, we feel these actions affect the safety of these public events and undermines the Constitutional right to demonstrate.Koreio’s lack of response and communication over the last three years along with defiant statements are examples of the lack of effort from SPD to protectthe public and establish trust with the community.

Aug. 16th response from OPA states:
OPA investigations staff have determined that no violation of SPD policy had occurred. According to SMC 11.25.110, a march is defined as a “a parade of 50 or more persons.” It was determined that the event in question did not meet this requirement, and thereby SPD was not required per policy to provide traffic control. 

We consider this response an excuse given SPD has given traffic control in prior years and consider this inexcusable and negligent placing ourselves, the marchers and the public at risk. Due to the heightened security of the LGBTQ community this year, the numerous cars on the road and the cars which passed the marchers by on the adjacent lane, we feel SPD deflected their responsibility in providing public safety. Especially in light of the death of Summer Taylor in the summer of 2020 due to a vehicle assault and what appears to be the failure of SPD to provide adequate traffic escort.

Seattle Municipal Code 11.25.110 requires police to provide traffic control even for sidewalk protests and this was not provided.

Capitol Hill Pride had requested numerous times a confirmation from Dorian Korieo and Capt. Jim Britt to conduct traffic control for the Capitol Hill Pride March & Rally on Sat. June 24 which was not provided.
SPD failed to show up to even verify the number of attendees, contact or conduct any traffic control in the street or sidewalk crossings in any manner for the march on June 24th of this year.

In the preceding weeks, SPD has indicated they would not do traffic control if attendees are less than 50. Seattle Municipal code 11.25.119 only addresses requirements for a permit and we believe this part of the code has been conveniently misinterpreted.  

Seattle Municipal Code 11.25.030 also states  No parade permit shall be denied, revoked or modified, and no parade permit restrictions shall be imposed, due in whole or in part, to the contents of statements or viewpoints expressed by the parade participants.”

Nowhere does the code address a city’s waiver or right to decline safe traffic control and does not absolve the responsibility of police to provide traffic control for an annual march contingent of any size especially when requested.

Capitol Hill Pride has had a march component since 2015 for its annual event with an estimated 500 in the march from Cal Anderson Park in 2021.

Capitol Hill Pride has never used sidewalks due to the historic nature of the march remembering Stonewall, banner size and anticipated attendees.

Capitol Hill Pride believes the definition of a Liaison is to advocate for both parties and to work together and communicate to increase civil and human rights and safety. Because of these violations Capitol Hill Pride feels Dorian Korieo cannot be considered a Liaison and hence is requesting his immediate removal from this position.

PRESS RELEASE

6/18/2021


Capitol Hill Pride stands firm in its commitment to equality and will not support discrimination.

Capitol Hill Pride cannot and will not be pressured into supporting in any manner any Pride event that is charging admission based on the color of a person’s skin. 

Capitol Hill Pride has worked with many LGBTQAI organizations over the years and our policy is to be inclusive, supportive and not divisive.  

We consider any discriminatory admissions policy a violation of the Equality Act.
Racial equality and unity does not come about by racial division. We feel strongly that elected representatives take an oath to represent everyone and not just one segment of the community or political party.

We will never charge admission over the color of a person's skin.

Capitol Hill Pride continues to work with ground level organizations to promote equality and social justice with community and stand proud in those values and we should not be pressured, attacked or defamed for our commitment.

PRESS RELEASE
5/21/2021
For immediate release

Capitol Hill Pride Bans Police from 2021 March & Rally and asks Chief to fire the Six SPD Officers who traveled to Washington DC.

Capitol Hill Pride is announcing a ban of police at the upcoming Capitol Hill March & Rally to be held Pride weekend Sat. & Sun. June 26-27, 2021 at Cal Anderson Park.

To the safety and courtesy of the LGBTQ and diversity community as well as the general public our responsibility is to present a safe event and is dedicated to creating an atmosphere free of fear or harm for members of the community.  As such, Capitol Hill Pride is announcing a ban of police at the event and will continue to request police to stay at the perimeters.

With the current Seattle lawsuits of police misconduct using blast balls and tear gas against peaceful protestors, the six names of the SPD who visited Washington DC Jan. 6th still to be released and their extent of action in the Capitol Insurrection, along with ongoing concerns of white supremacy views within police departments, Capitol Hill Pride does not have confidence at this time in Seattle’s police ability to protect the public and to protect the public’s right to protest.

Capitol Hill Pride agrees with and applauds New York Pride’s ban of police presence until 2025 and stands with other social justice organizations to ban a police presence and advocate police reform.

In line with New York Pride, Capitol Hill Pride also believes the sense of safety that law enforcement is meant to provide can instead be threatening, and at times dangerous, to those in our community who are most often targeted with excessive force and/or without reason. We challenge Seattle Police to acknowledge their harmful actions, to correct their conduct, policies and improve their efforts moving forward.

As such, Capitol Hill Pride is also asking Interim Seattle Police Chief Adrian to fire the six officers who attended Washington DC during the time of the Capitol Insurrection Jan. 6th as we feel city employees knowingly traveling in support of people who are attempting an insurrection or any disruption of a democratic process even if their participation was as a passive observer, should be an offense that merits termination.

Capitol Hill Pride for the event instead hopes to work closer with the fire department, have a medic unit on site and host a safe and welcoming event.

Capitol Hill Pride will be continuing to uplift diversity organizations, youth groups and artists this year for 2021.
