Are you itching to get your Pride on NOW rather than wait for the deluge of events that begin tomorrow, (Thursday) and explode into a huge list of options for Friday/Saturday/Sunday? Seattle Out and Proud, the producers of the Pride Parade, among many other events, is kicking some fun off tonight at the Hard Rock Cafe at 116 Pike Street in downtown Seattle with their Pride Pin Launch event starting at 7pm and running until 10pm. Hosted by Gaysha Starr, the event helps kick off Pride AND provides you an opportunity to purchase the official Pride 2011 pin, with part of the proceeds going to Seattle Out and Proud. Entertainment will also be provided by the Pride Idol winners and a concert by Soul Jelly. The event is free with a suggested $5 donation to SOAP and is recommended for 21+ patrons.
Oh, and donate $5.00 and receive 5 raffle tickets to enter to win an Xbox Kinect!
Check it out.
