PRIDE: First-ever West Seattle Junction-wide flags are up

(WSB photos)

It’s Pride weekend, and the 60-plus rainbow flags that the West Seattle Junction Association offered for “adoption” are up!

They were placed in the heart of The Junction this morning, will be taken down this evening, and put back in place tomorrow. It’s the first time The Junction has displayed Pride flags; all were adopted after the April availability announcement, and adopters had the chance to have messages displayed with their flags – if you can’t walk The Junction to see for yourself, the list is here.

        No room in this community for hate. Discrimination isn’t a matter of opinion; it’s a matter of right and wrong.

    That’s nice. Hopefully we’ll see USA 🇺🇸 flags for 4th of July!!!  Will there be flags for every special group/ occasion?

      Are you new to the area? The Junction has been putting up flags for the 4th, Memorial Day, Flag Day, etc., for years. In fact you can help put them up/take them down – we usually publish calls for volunteer help. – TR

      For as many groups and special occasions as you’d like to put flags up for. Even Independence Day.
