Seattle Out & Proud (Seattle Pride) exists to coordinate and promote LGBTQIA+ pride events in the Seattle area—celebrating the present, envisioning the future and honoring the past. As a non-profit organization, sponsorship and donations are used to offset expenses required to produce the year-round celebrations. We are a 501c(4) nonprofit organization.
