The Trans Pride Seattle March and Celebration is one of the largest Trans Pride gatherings in the United States. A community event like this couldn’t take place if not for the volunteers who will help in the planning and production of the March and Celebration at Cal Anderson Park. Trans Pride Seattle values the diversity of our communities, and we are intentional about the accessibility of the event. Volunteers contribute greatly to our ability to keep the event economically accessible to all, to make the space accessible, and to make our programming language accessible. Volunteers make a huge impact on Trans Pride’s capacity to give back to the community by helping us to maintain a safe, exciting, and economically viable event.
