Kitsap Pride Announces Annual Summer LGBT Celebration

Sunday, July 20th, Kitsap Pride Network invites the community to Evergreen Park for a day of food and family friendly entertainment from 12 to 5pm.

This year’s theme, Reflections of Pride, honors the inherent dualism of the 1960s, which sparked the fiery Stonewall uprising amidst the peaceful revolution held by the “flower power” generation. Pride Chairperson, Michael Goodnow stated, “We’ve come a long way as a society. This past decade, we’ve experienced great strides forward in regards to the equal rights movement. It’s important to take a moment and reflect back on the struggles of those who came before us. It was their bravery, 45 years ago that got us to where we are today. “

Goodnow also shared a few highlights to this year’s event including performances by local artists the Dirty Beat Duo, and the first openly gay country music singer, Patrick Haggerty.

Kitsap Pride is a non-profit event organized by volunteers throughout Kitsap County. For more information on Kitsap Pride, how you can participate, or event dates and times, visit Kitsappride.org.
