Pride Party ’09

Pride season is here.  I know many of you made it to Seattle this past weekend.  The ferry I was on was packed with pride goers.  I even got the ferry to wish everyone off to the parade to have a good time as we pulled in to Coleman Dock.  Next year we should have a pre-party on the morning ferry!  The parade was fabulous and the Pride fest at Seattle Center was nuts!  Up on the hill was crazy too.  Our two favorite DJ’s were spinning together at the Cuff Complex for Sunday’s Block Party.  Last year’s Pride Party DJ Martin “Funkybear” Petersen and this year’s Pride Party disc jockey DJ Matt Stands.  We are so excited to bring Seattle caliber DJ’s to you.  We work hard to create a club night that you would expect in a much larger city.  More than that we are proud at the response from you for turning out each month and every month. Kitsap Pride is Saturday, July 18th at Bremerton’s Evergreen Park.  This year’s theme is “Our Rights – Your Rights – Human Rights.”  Red Star is a major sponsor this year at $1,000.  This is where the money goes.  After expenses and some investments we give back to the community.  There is a great line up that will be posted soon at Kitsap Pride’s website.  Pride starts at noon and goes to 5pm.  Stop by the Red Star booth for fun & prizes!  We have a beautiful new t-shirt design that we expect to sell out of so get yours early!  The day doesn’t end there; at 9pm doors open for Red Star’s Pride Party!

This year’s party will be bigger and better that any year before!  We have so many surprises up our sleeves.  We expect to have well over 200 people this year.  The place will look swanky with exciting lighting and posh décor.  DJ Matt Stands, resident DJ at Seattle’s Cuff Complex, returns to spin the dancefloor into a frenzy like he did for our MAYDAY Party.  We’ll be at the Eagles again but don’t worry if you don’t recognize the place.  Cover is still only $5 and doors open at 9pm.  The door and bar are CASH ONLY.  There is a typical bar ATM downstairs and a Chase ATM located on the same block.  Susan will be rocking the bar again and keeping the lines down.  The Pride Party is 21 and over only.

Enter the Eagles upstairs at 205 6th Street.  If you drive, there is plenty of parking available in the area.  Most of it is free and the word on the street is that the nearby pay-lots are not checked that late.  The lot next to the Eagles on Washington is reserved for their members – the good people who allow us to turn their hall into the biggest gay bar around.

State of LGBT Rights

Kitsap County ACLU is sponsoring a speaker on the night of Jan. 26th (that’s a Monday) at 7:00 p.m. at the Eagle Harbor bookstore on Bainbridge Island. Hank Balson of the Public Interest Law Group will speak on the “State of LGBT Rights: Focus on Washington.

The ACLU is a long time supporter of Gay/Lesbian rights and we feel that this is an important civil liberties issue.
