Welcome, Sponsors!

First and foremost, thank you for supporting Seattle Pride! With the support of our corporate and community partners, Seattle Pride is able to produce the annual Seattle Pride Parade and Volunteer Park Pride Festival, Seattle Pride Guide, and other events throughout the community.

This year’s Seattle Pride Parade commemorates two important anniversaries in LGBTQIA+ history. The first is a movement that started in Seattle 45 years ago with the first gay liberation week in 1974, and the other is the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, which was a series of demonstrations and protests by the LGBTQIA+ community to defend their rights to exist in society. With the help of these historic events, undeniable victories in LGBTQIA+ civil rights have been achieved, including: marriage equality nation-wide, anti-discrimination employment laws in 24 US states and territories, the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” and acceptance of LGBTQIA+ celebrities, elected politicians, and public figures. But these advances are only the beginning of the road to complete equality nationally and world-wide, and we still have a long journey ahead to reach a place where no one is marginalized — not by race, nationality, religious beliefs, sexual orientation and/or gender identity. So as we pause to look back with respect, honor, and gratitude for those who began this fight for equality, we also look forward with ambition, motivation, pride and hope.
