The folks at One Degree Events who put on Seattle Pridefest events all over the city, including the BIG Pridefest event at Seattle Center on Sunday, June 26 announced the theme for this year’s production, “Live Proud” a few months back and over the weekend they were busy little beavers and took some Lovely Photographs to help illustrate that theme. Local photographer/make-up artist JJ Cariaso took these delightful shots of some key Pridefest personnel including the always photogenic leader Egan Orion and they’ve been posted on the Pridefest Facebook page. We’re guessing these are going to be used for advertising and marketing purposes in the weeks ahead. But, these pictures are so purdy, they’re going to have problems with people ripping them off walls and electrical posts and taking them home to tack up above their beds…they’re DREAMY!
Also don’t forget that tickets are already on sale for the Big Red Party events being held on Saturday, June 25, the Men’s Party being held at Neumos with DJ Brian Gorr and the Women’s Party being held at The Baltic Room with DJ Spinderella. But, everyone is able to attend either/both events…they’re not doing a gender check at the door. All is love, baby.
UPDATE: We just got this email from One Degree with some awesome offers and reminders!
