Pacific Northwest Black Pride 2021

PNW Black Pride invites everyone to a hybrid celebration of diversity, solidarity, and digital inclusion in 2021. Today we walk further into 2021 with cautious optimism as a renewed sense of hope has begun to wash over us!

The renewed sense of hope we have, that our community, with our love, our lives, and our lived experiences is, at last, being recognized. We must continue to lift up that legacy if we are to foster a future free of prejudice and bias for all LGBTQ people locally, nationally, and globally.

The Pacific Northwest Black Pride Theme in 2021: “Stronger Together Fighting: Anti-Blackness – Centering Black Trans Lives”.

Throughout this year, our programs, events, education, and messages will focus on the ways in which our community and movement can restore, rebuild, redeem, and revive each other as we reimagine a free and fearless future ahead. We are intentional about the resiliency we are weaving into our work of monitoring, advocating and disseminating information on the issues impacting our LGBTQ communities locally, regionally, nationally and globally. We also remember to be healthy and whole. Bright days lie ahead! Together in Pride, we are resilient!

Finally, in 2021 we will have a few live events plus digital events, stay tuned for more information. Given the realities of the COVID-19 pandemic (it may go all virtual), large-scale events such as Pride festival in the park are simply not possible and pose too much of a risk to public health and safety. We’re abiding by Federal, State and Local directives to ensure the safety of all:
