The Southwest Seattle Historical Society is excited to host “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 an historical presentation discussing the history of Pride and the LGBTQIA+ community on the national and local levels. Attendees will also hear from panelists Stacy Bass-Walden, founder of Alki Beach Pride, Aleksa Manila, a drag artist and social activist, and Oliver Webb of the Diversity Alliance of the Puget Sound. Registration is required.
Advance registration is required. Registrants will be emailed a Zoom link to the program on June 17. Please register HERE.
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. We’ll also 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 facilitated by Maggie Kase, curator of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society, followed by a 30-minute panel discussion, and an opportunity for an audience Q&A.
Registration is required. Please register HERE today.
This program of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society is made possible by the support of our generous sponsors Luna Park Cafe, 4Culture, Duwamish Tribal Services, and HomeStreet Bank.
