The Divas have been making regular showings at Pride since 1988. Well technically â€œDivasâ€ where at pride way before Seattle Divas ever made a grand entranceâ€“ but hey â€“ who is taking note? These days we celebrate Gay Pride the good old fashion way â€“ with friends and family!
Seattle Gay Pride started for us last Wednesday, on June 15th with our Pride Kick-Off Party. It was a great way to kick off Pride with our favorite performers and gal-pal business owners. We asked some of our folks what they are doing this year for Pride and below are our MUST SEE hot spots for 2011â€™s Seattle Gay Pride!
