Giving Tuesday

December 1st is #GivingTuesday. A day for you to unleash your generosity on non-profits that serve your community.

2020 has been a hard year for non-profits like ours which haven’t been able to do many of the fundraising events we usually do. Your donation can help ensure that we can do more in the coming year.

If you donate on Facebook, they will pay all the processing fees for you, so 100% of your donation goes directly to Kitsap Pride. We also have a donation option on our Square store.

Giving Thanks

This year we’re giving thanks for our chosen families who we may not be able to gather with in person but we know that we are in each others’ hearts.

We’re giving thanks to our volunteers who navigated shifting phases to think about how we could have a Pride celebration.

We’re giving thanks to our local LGBTQ+ community who have shown so much love and support throughout. Thank you for the donations and well wishes. We feel blessed.

We’re giving thanks to our sponsors who stood by us with flexibility and understanding. A huge thank you to the Suquamish Tribe, the Port Gamble S’Klallams Tribe, the Washington Health Benefit Exchange, UnitedHealthcare, Kitsap Public Health District, and Sirens.

And we’re giving thanks that 2021 is shaping up to be an entirely different year filling our hearts with so much hope.

Kitsap Pride is distributing free Pride Masks on Friday, September 4, 2020 from 5pm to 7pm in downtown Bremerton. We had originally planned for these to be in the Drive-Thru Pride boxes so we are offering them free to the community.

To the Kitsap Pride Community

Due to the current necessary restrictions we are not going to be able to hold our traditional Pride celebration in Evergreen Park this year.

However, we wanted to let you all know that we are working on some exciting ideas for meaningful ways in which we can celebrate our local LGBTQ+ community.

We aren’t ready to let them out of the box just yet.

Stay tuned on Facebook for announcements of our local ideas and news about how the regional, national, and even worldwide Pride organizations are coming together this year.

Please reach out to us at celebrate@kitsappride.org or here if you have any questions. Exhibitors and sponsors please check your email or write to exhibitors@kitsappride.org if you haven’t heard from us.

With Pride,

Michael, Marcie, Felix, Jeannie, Victor, Nyx, and Fletcher
