“We are so excited to finally bring our community together in-person this fall to not only celebrate diversity and queer arts and culture, but also to celebrate National Coming Out Day on the following Monday, October 11,” said Seattle Pride Executive Director Krystal Marx.

In recognition of National Coming Out Day, community members will be invited to reflect on their coming out stories at a My Coming Out Story video booth at the event and online at in advance of the celebration, hosted by Seattle Pride in partnership with C89.5 and Three Dollar Bill Cinema

“Sharing your coming out story is incredibly important for our community – regardless of whether that experience was painful or humorous or something else altogether,” shared Marx. “We want our community to participate in sharing their coming out stories because it allows other folks in our community to live authentically, creating a safer space for us all.”

The surely powerful coming out video testimonials will be treated with sensitivity and the respect they deserve, and will be archived at C895.org/Pride and compiled for a Seattle Pride YouTube channel release on Coming Out Day to generate empathy, create new advocates — and inspire others to come out. Folks can submit their coming out stories online in advance of the event at C895.org/Pride.

The fall celebration will also see the return of Seattle Pride’s Vote with Pride campaign – which it launched last year – sponsored by Seattle Pride’s Seattle Out & Proud Foundation to grow LGBTQIA+ voter registration and participation in the upcoming general election. The Vote with Pride booth will help attendees register to vote, educate themselves about the candidates with the new, online Seattle Pride Voter’s Guide, and offer Vote with Pride campaign stickers and yard signs.

Masks are required for all attendees at this event. Proof of vaccination (both vaccination cards and cellphone photos of vaccination cards accepted) is required for event and alcohol garden entry; patrons unable to be vaccinated – regardless of age – can show proof of negative COVID PCR test within 48 hours of the event. Details regarding COVID safety precautions and requirements are available on the event webpage.
