The Southwest Seattle Historical Society is delighted to announce “From Stonewall to Seattle: The History of Pride on the Duwamish Peninsula and Beyond” a live Zoom presentation and panel discussion on Thursday, June 17 at 6:00 PM. Join us for a brief historical presentation discussing the history of Pride and LGBTQIA+ community and culture nationally and locally. Best of all, hear from panelists Stacy Bass-Walden of Alki Beach Pride, Aleksa Manila, a drag artist and Seattle’s sweetheart of social activism, and Oliver Webb of Diversity Alliance of the Puget Sound. Registration is required.

The Stonewall Uprising wasn’t the first protest against police raiding of gay clubs and LGBTQ+ spaces, but it’s often the first that comes to mind when we think of Pride today. We’ll dive deeper into one of the catalysts for the contemporary LGBTQ+ rights movement that spread from Stonewall to Seattle and beyond. Let’s explore how Pride is commemorated today on the Duwamish Peninsula not only in June, but all year round!   

The program will consist of a 20-minute presentation from the Southwest Seattle Historical Society, followed by a 30-minute panel discussion, and an opportunity for an audience Q&A. Register below!
