We welcome allied organizations who have programming relevant to a Trans audience. Specifically we are looking for participation from organizations or groups that serve: Trans folks of color, Trans, Gender Queer, and Gender Diverse Youth, Low-Income Trans Folks, Trans folks who are immigrants, Trans elders groups or focus, and Groups focused on accessibility and ability organizing in Trans Communities.

Please be mindful of the impact of their tables on the park and on our clean up efforts. Information & SWAG should all be monitored and cleaned up after tabling. We ask that organizations tabling bring information relevant to their specific services geared at the Trans and Gender Diverse communities when available.

Trans Pride Tabling/March Questions
1. What time should we be at the tables? 6:00-10PM? Can we set up early so we can march as well?
Please come set up early, so that you are prepared to join our marchers. Marchers line up at the college between 5:00pm and 6:00pm (on Broadway, north end of the college). You can check in for your table assignment at 4:30pm. That should give you ample time to set up and walk over to the March route.
2. Where/When should we check in?
Come to the Cal Anderson Park Meadow. The cabana on-site will be open at 4:00pm, but we will have a Tabling Coordinator that any volunteer or staff member can reach and get you oriented.
3. Where will our table be located?
We’ve created a preliminary list of tabling locations where everyone will be situated. Each of the last two years saw us needing to be flexible on how those assignments are deployed, so we’ll make sure to accommodate you as best we can.
4. Will we need to provide our own tables?
We have contracted with local vendors to provide canopies in case of rain, 8-foot tables (or 4 feet half-tables), and two chairs per table (plus some extra chairs just for tablers to use). You may provide your own additional tables, but they would need to be located behind the 8-foot tables, either under or near your canopy. NOTE: IF YOU ARE BRINGING YOUR OWN TABLES, CANOPIES, CHAIRS, PLEASE LET US KNOW!
In most cases, driving a vehicle onto the property will not be permitted. The park entrance we are using is on 11th Ave at Olive St. You may back in (with the use of a spotter!) to offload your gear, or pull adjacent to the curb at that intersection out of the way of traffic. We’ll try to accommodate you and other vehicles in the space.
6. Where do we line up for march at 5pm? Website says that assembly at SCCC may be in question?
The March lineup will occur on Broadway, starting at the north end of campus, moving south as people and organizations arrive. Caution tape will keep folks on the sidewalk, and the march will step into the street at the north end of campus. Seattle Central Community College is prepared to have our event, and may have their own staff on site. Look for a canopy or signage about how to address any questions at the march site.
7. Anything else?
Some tables will be available to make signs. Bring what you want for signmaking, and also find some supplies nearby at the park.
Sunscreen! Hats! Rainbow gear! Wear your best! Look fabulous! Remember to head over to the march site by 5:45pm to step off into the street right at 6:00pm. Then its a few block’s walk until you enter the park on 11th and Olive. We’ll see you on June 22nd!
