The Capitol Hill Pride Festival March will be an all ages, all orientations, all gender/transgender civic march with no fees open to the public.
The march has no fees as the Directors of the festival feel an individual should not have to pay a fee to march, demonstrate or show civic and community pride.
Seattle has not had an all gender inclusive LGBT march for many years since the Parade started charging fees thereby shutting out individuals and low budget organizations.
Marchers are encouraged to bring hand written signs.Participants: Seven the Appoloosa, Trent Davis MC, Laura Ingles Wilder representing Intersex gender, Dan Kemmis
