We need your help!
To Have a Successful Seattle Pride® Celebration, Seattle Out And Proud is in need of Volunteers...

If you are gay, lesbian, bi, transgendered or gay friendly, then we need your help!! In addition to the folks who work on PRIDE all year long it takes well over 500 volunteer hours during the Pride parade to make the Seattle Pride® Celebration in June a happy, exciting, and SAFE event for all.

Without its volunteers, Seattle Pride® wouldn't exist. This year, hundreds of proud individuals will put their time, skill, and enthusiasm into the event. In return, we receive not only a fabulous Seattle Pride® Event, but also a sense of community and an appreciation of its diversity. Imagine all the friends you'll meet and the socializing that is all part of the volunteer experience with Seattle Pride®.

Volunteer NOW

All volunteers will get a really cool, official Seattle Pride® t-shirt and gift bag for helping out!
