Kitsap Pride Network

The mission of Kitsap Pride Network is to celebrate, support, and unite the LGBTQ+ community in Kitsap County. We produce the annual Kitsap Pride celebration in July. We sponsor a popular Meetup group which allows LGBTQ+ people to come together in casual social settings. We support other area LGBTQ+ non-profits and clubs. And, we are working on expanding to host more events throughout the year
We measure our impact in thousands of lives that we touch each year, but sometimes the small outcomes have the most impact. One moment that sticks with me was working at the Kitsap Pride tent at our celebration this year and selling a rainbow flag to a teenager to use as a cape. We talk of Pride, but to actually see the pride in the beaming face of someone who is able to show their true colors is transformational. Walking through Kitsap Pride this year we really felt the community coming together. We had many families set up on the grass spending the whole day enjoying the music, the food, the exhibitors, and local non-profits. Kitsap Pride is a celebration and a lot of fun, but for many people it is also a form of support. Seeing this community which is welcoming to all the colors of the LGBTQ+ rainbow.
Our theme for 2018 is simply to celebrate Kitsap Pride. This year's event will be Saturday, July 21, 2018 in Evergreen Park in Bremerton. We'll have music, food vendors, local artisans and non-profits. And, we'll build on last year featuring more community events and participation. Your donation will help us keep this event free for all the families and youth that participate!
