Tacoma Pride Is Happening….NOW!

Our big/little sister to the south end of the Puget Sound Metroplex is celebrating their LGBTQ Pride….


Yes, it’s TACOMA PRIDE 2018 and it kicked off today, Friday July 13th with a Pride Flag Raising and continues this evening with out lesbian comedian LEA DeLARIA performing in concert, the big official Tacoma Pride Festival happens Saturday, July 14th in Downtown Tacoma with a family friendly event all day long. 

There’s all a fun “Queer-Fem Con” happening as well as several night time events for the over 21 crowd including the huge Tacoma Pride Street Party at The Mix with Seattle Gay Scene on hand to photograph, as well as the second annual “Lesbihonest Dance Party” at the Black Kettle (which confusingly seems to have closed but this event is apparently still happening…tickets HERE.)  (Sadly, the Lesbihonest Dance Party is NOT happening due to the late June closure of the Black Kettle; oddly, Tacoma Pride hasn’t removed it from their website.) There’s also Club Silverstone’s annual street party happening just down the street from The Mix.

Oddly, Seattle’s own Bacon Strip hostess Sylvia O’Stayformore hosts The Mix party while her Bacon Strip co-host, Honey Bucket will host the rival Club Silverstone event.

More info on all these events below and we’ll see you Saturday in Tacoma!
