Do you like celebrating LGBTQ Pride in Seattle but you’re not really into booze, shrieking drag queens, sloppy bottomed go go boys and elderlesbians on motorcycles? (and, nothing wrong with any of those things. But, sometimes you crave something different to celebrate our LGBTQ Pride….something not involving a Budweiser sponsorship or $25 cover).
You have an option this year in Seattle!
The 20th annual “Arts in Nature Festival” is happening the same weekend as Seattle’s LGBTQ Pride celebrations, Saturday and Sunday, June 29th and 30th at Camp Long in West Seattle. It’s presented by the Delridge Neighborhood Development Association and it’s a FREE event featuring all sorts of arty stuff to do.
There’s even LGBTQ talent involved with the festival…folkx like Cherdonna Shinatra! Also: Delridge is hella gay friendly. It’s full of friendly elder gays, most of them paired up but always welcoming visitors to their ‘hood.
