Trans Pride Seattle is an annual event organized by Gender Justice League in association with local organizations who support the Seattle-area trans and gender diverse community. Supporting organizations for Trans Pride Seattle from past years include (but are not limited to) the Gay City Health Project, AIDS Healthcare Foundation, Pride Fest, and ACLU Washington.
Trans Pride Seattle is open to everyone who believes trans and gender non-conforming people deserve to live lives free from violence, discrimination, stigmatization, poverty, hatred, rejection, medical abuse and neglect, and mental pathologization. We encourage the participation of groups, organizations, and individuals in the trans and gender diverse community and those offering services directly to our community.
