Show your Pride this weekend

Pride tshirtOn Sunday, June 28, King County employees, along with their family and friends, will be marching together for the first time ever in the annual Seattle LGBT Pride Parade.

Led by King County Executive Dow Constantine, employees from across the County will take part in the parade in support of the “Equity for All – One King County” theme.

“I invite you, your family, and friends to join me and hundreds of fellow King County employees from across our divisions, departments, and branches of government to march as One King County in the 40th annual Pride Parade,” Executive Constantine said. “I hope you will be able to join in the festivities to demonstrate King County’s strong and ongoing support.”

Participation is free and voluntary, and is assured to be plenty of fun.

The parade will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. along 4th Avenue in downtown Seattle. Line up for the parade no later than 10:30 a.m. on Fourth Avenue between Union and Seneca. There will be “Equality for All” t-shirts in adult sizes available to the first 200 employees and family members. For participants unable to get a t-shirt, they are encouraged to wear other King County logo gear or a colorful t-shirt.
