We at genderpanic are in Seattle and Seattle Pride is here! There’s a rainbow flag flying on top of the Space Needle for the first time ever, and there have been parties and events happening all over the city this past week.
We’ve been all over the town, walking in the Dyke March, cheering at the Pride Parade, and browsing the booths at Capitol Hill Pride and the Seattle Pride Festival. We’ve seen the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, naked rainbow men on bicycles, lesbrarians, a 10-foot wide replica of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, Batman on roller skates wearing a g-string, lesbians lube wrestling on a float, and much, much more! It’s been a good week to have fun, to be proud, and to give one’s lover boo an extra squeeze while out in public. We’ve seen so many cute couples, of so many different gender combinations, and are truly delighted by this year’s outpouring of pride in diversity. Kudos to you, Seattle, and to all the excellent queer organizations and resources that exist within you!
