Despite today’s awful news about the Supreme Court overturning the right to have an abortion in this country, there are still places/events to check out this weekend in Seattle as the city celebrates its LGBTQ+ Pride.
The obvious big event is the return of The Wildrose’s annual huge outdoor street party outside/inside the beloved women owned queer bar at 11th and Pike Street on Capitol Hill. The Wildrose is one of a handful of lesbian owned bars for the lesbian community/allies left in the country and fans of the bar are thrilled its still around and able to celebrate Pride with the entire community.
They have a packed festival of events this year. You can grab tickets at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/wildrose-pride-2022-tickets-341593293737 or at the gate. Also be aware that Sunday, June 26th is a pay what you can day. The line-up:

Seattle’s Lesbian destination venue for over a quarter of a century, The Wildrose is excited to get back to PRIDE! It’s been a rough couple of years for everyone, but we pivot towards Pride full of optimism, and ready to celebrate with our community. This year, The Wildrose has joined forces with Kendall’s DJ and Event (KDJE) to partner with us in the curation and management of a robust and dynamic line up of local, regional, and West Coast talent. After 2 whole years of missing out on our full Pride experience, we are SO EXCITED to be back! Looking forward to seeing all the old faces, from our pre Covid past, and welcoming all the new folks that have come of age since.
