Just when you thought Pride was over, Northwest Pride of Color is just getting started!
NWPoC is a festival of events created by and for LGBTQ communities of color in the Pacific Northwest, developed by multiple organizations working together to make fun parties and meaningful conversations. These events go beyond the cis-white-male-dominated beer gardens and the corporate sponsored parade floats, invoking authentic connection and representation of queer people of color.
The festival aims to celebrate intersectional identities and establish thriving spaces for queers of color to feel safe, honored, connected, and alive!
While the events have been created by and for queer people of color, white and non-LGBTQ allies are also welcome to participate as guests in these QPOC spaces.
The event lineup will feature great parties, thoughtful discussions, and community activist opportunities from July 12th through July 30th!
