Seattle Pride Announces Summer Grant Recipients

Jul 08, 2022 | Seattle Pride

We’re so excited to announce our Seattle Pride (501(c)(4)) and Seattle Out & Proud Foundation (501(c)(3)) summer grant recipients! Pride Month may be over, but the LGBTQIA+ community is here year-round which is why we support LGBTQIA+ nonprofits twice each year – learn more about our grant program HERE.

Seattle Pride Summer Grant Recipients

This summer’s recipients are doing the important work of creating safe community spaces for trans, nonbinary, and gender diverse people.

Seattle Trans Joy ($5,000) – Community experiences for gender diverse people are incredibly important. The grant will fund two free events – the Seattle Trans Picnic and Seattle Trans Camp 2. These are events for the local trans and nonbinary community to build trans dignity, connection, and experience joy.

"In this time of systemic and cultural aggression against trans and nonbinary people, more than ever we need places for our community to come together to build relationships, feel dignity, and experience trans joy. Seattle Pride's grant will help us so much in achieving these aims by making our trans events more welcoming and nourishing for even more of our community."

Jerika Che, Seattle Trans Joy

Seattle Out & Proud Foundation Summer Grant Recipients

Seattle Trans and Nonbinary Choral Ensemble (STANCE) ($2,000) – This program provides a vocal space free of gendered expectations, by and for transgender and nonbinary singers, to explore and express themselves through music. The grant will enable them to pay their artistic director and prepare to launch Seattle’s first choir by and for trans an nonbinary singers.

"Thank you so much to Seattle Out and Proud Foundation for being the first organization to provide support to our newly founded group. With your help we can make Seattle's first choir by and for Trans and Nonbinary singers a reality."

Haven Wilvich, Executive Director, Seattle Trans and Nonbinary Choral Ensemble
