Trans* Pride Seattle 2015 Campaign



About Trans* Pride Seattle -

Trans Pride Seattle is a march & pride event organized by Gender Justice League, and fiscally-sponsored by Gay City Health Project. It is held in conjunction with other annual LGBTQ pride events in June, and will take place Friday June 26th, 2015 from 5pm to 10pm.

(New to GJL or Trans* Pride? Check out our video from a previous campaign!)

Overview - 
Trans* Pride Seattle will include a march from Broadway Ave to Cal Anderson Park though Capitol Hill, a schedule of nationally-renowned speakers from the trans community including a Keynote by Bamby Salcedo, Trans Latina activist and subject of the documentary of "Trans Visible: The Bamby Salcedo Story." Additional speakers include: Trans* and sex worker activist Monica Jones of Phoenix, Arizona; Transgender Law Center Health Policy Manager Anand Kalra; and local spoken word and musical acts. Community groups will be present with information & resource at our tabling fair with a unique focus on trans community related organizations.

Who's Invited - 
The Trans* Pride Seattle march will include community members that identify across a spectrum of trans* identities - people who identify as Transgender, Transsexual, Gender Queer, Gender Non-Conforming, Trans Men, Trans Women, Drag Queens and Kings, Cross Dressers, and our Friends, Families, Co-Workers, and of course our allies, friends, families, and partners!

Purpose - 
The purpose of the march and rally is to raise visibility, awareness, and support for the trans* community and to elevate the challenges faced by trans* and gender non-conforming people in Seattle and more broadly in Washington, the United States, and Internationally.  Our goal for 2015 is to continue to highlight the incredible work by trans* activists of color, to build connections and solidarity with other movements, and to honor these activists work by paying them to speak on our stage.

Funding Goals - 
This fundraising campaign allows us to cover the cost of bringing these incredible speakers to Seattle, paying for permits, equipment, advertising, and local talent. This campaign also allows us to avoid having to rely on corporate donations (as other Pride Organizations do) so we can remain independent and elevate topics that might be considered ‘too controversial’ for conservative or traditional funders of Pride Events.  We strive to be community based, community accountable, and a community driven pride event – and this means relying primarily on community funding as key to meeting these goals!

Get Your Gear!
Please consider making a donation and packing up Trans* Pride Seattle gear which will be delivered at the event.  Unfortunately – we are not able to sell our gear the day of Trans Pride Seattle – so you must order gear in advance.  Donating to get gear helps us raise much needed funds and it allows you to represent your Trans Pride!
