Hey, if anyone is gonna be at Seattle Trans Pride please let me know!
We can meet up at Thomas and Broadway say around 5:45 before the march starts there at 6PM, or meet up afterwards in Cal Anderson somewhere. Thoughts? Ideas? I'll be there for sure, hoping to get as many people out as possible!

FYI: The actual date on this was really hard to find. It's this friday the 28th I think.

It's not just you, it was even hard to find on the linked event page. I had to go through to like the full calendar or something 2-3 clicks in.

Oh yeah the events page is...a struggle. (I once tried to open it on my phone. NEVER AGAIN jiminy that was ugly.)

I won't be able to make it because of scheduling, but I would urge folks to meet up somewhere separately and go together - I am hearing a lot of talk that Proud Boys are looking to crash this.

I met with the Gender Justice League here, there will be 50 security folks (all queer people, for the queer community, by the queer community) and Mayor Durkan responded to a question I asked her in person about policing on Capitol Hill by saying they are increasing police forces but have cops who are supposedly more trained in de-escalation. I assume by that she means "the cops won't beat the shit out of the queers but will arrest the proud boys instead" but I ain't holding my breath...

Ok, so is Thomas and Broadway at 5:45 official, then?

Yeah, let's meet there. I'll be wearing a floral romper, it may be pretty crowded, I'll try to figure out some way to broadcast a bat signal for us to rally at.

I think I'm going to make it. Been sorting through all sorts of "Should I go? Is this sufficiently for-me that I wouldn't be an interloper, etc." thoughts, but given I've been seeing calls for additional support/bodies in case of what Corb's mentioned from a few different channels, that's enough that I figure I should set aside internal turmoil to help out/be there.
Hopefully nothing'll happen along those lines, of course, but all the easier to push me in the direction I know I've been needing to go.

Just to help with recognition I have a short undercut, a biggish floral tattoo on my left arm, and am wearing A Lot of eyeshadow (and purple lipstick) :)

Inside Cal Anderson, I'll probably stick around a little bit if we want to try to find each other!
