If you would still like a Tee or a Tote Bag, click on the "Order Now" button. We'll be collecting orders now through 6/30/23 or WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. This batch of orders will be available for local (Woodinville) pickup approx. mid to late July and we will communicate that date/timeframe with those who order. All proceeds go to fund our annual Woodinville Pride event.
The first annual Woodinvlle Pride took place at DeYoung Park in 2022. Local residents had a vision of seeing more LGBTQIA+ events on the Eastside for those less willing (or unable) to attend larger events in the city. We believe that our youth need more smaller, family-oriented, safe & inclusive events closer to home to show the types of resources available to the queer community and that local LGBTQIA+ artists, crafters, performers, creators, etc. deserve more opportunites to showcase their talents in an inclusive, safe space.
Tanya is a Woodinville resident with an LGBTQ Teen. When her daughter came out a few years ago they wanted to go to a small, local Pride event and found that there were not as many on the Eastside as they expected. Inspired by her love for her daughter (and the LGBTQ community) the idea for Woodinville Pride was born! Tanya works closely with a committee to plan this event and looks forward to years of growth & love to be shared in Woodinville.
Heidi Schauble is a Queer Woodinville Resident, social justice advocate and local community organizer. She graduated from UW Bothell with a Masters in Policy Studies and admins the Woodinville Social Justice Connection group and public page as well as serving on the Woodinville Pride Planning Committee.

Elliot is a local advocate founder of the Rainbow Pride Foundation who will be speaking on some of the trans issues being faced these days with some ways that people can help.
Open Mic Opportunity:
As we did last year, we would like to create a space for members of the LGBTQIA+ community, as well as family members, advocates and allies to speak. If you have something to share or would like to have your voice heard, please approach the stage and let the MC know you would like to speak. We may have a few questions to discourage potential hecklers, as hate speech will NOT be tolerated at our event.
