It’s Tacoma’s Turn To Get All Pride-y

When did Tacoma get so gay?

Has Tacoma become the next big queer hotspot in the Pacific Northwest? I mean, it makes sense…Capitol Hill is gentrifying to the point where many LGBTQ folk can’t afford to live there, or don’t want to because it’s losing its queer identity. The nesting gay couples all moved to Wallingford, Ballard and West Seattle years ago. The Central District has been slowly filling up with artsy-fartsy gays seeking lower rent and urban grit. Meanwhile, Tacoma has been quietly getting pinker and pinker…want proof? Check out upcoming events in our neighbor to the south all put on by the Broadway Center for the Performing Arts:

That’s a helluva lot of gay for one town…it means that in a span of two months you can see the Holy Gay Comedy Quartet of Sykes/Cho/Rivers and Griffith (in Seattle) in the Puget Sound area!

Heads may explode.

We might have to reevaluate Tacoma…or, start a spin-off site: Tacoma Gay Scene.
