Pride Asia 2017 Is Happening Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend

This year’s Seattle Pride Asia event is happening almost a month before Seattle’s citywide Pride celebrations which happen over the last weekend in June. It’s the 6th annual celebration and it’s once again happening in the International District’s Hay Hing Park at 423 Maynard Avenue South in the heart of Seattle’s traditional Chinatown neighborhood. It’s happening from Noon to 4 pm on Sunday, May 28th on Memorial Day Weekend. This is a free community event and family friendly! It’s a chance for Seattle’s LGBTQ Asian and Pacific Islander communities to celebrate Pride with allies and family.
Seattle Gay Scene is thrilled to sponsor this year’s event which is once again being organized by Aleksa Manila and other leaders of Seattle Pride Asia.
We also want to frame that GORGEOUS poster art. They really should sell copies to raise money!
