The mission of Trans Pride Seattle is to "increase the strength of the trans and gender diverse community and its allies, both within and beyond Seattle, through increased visibility, connection and love, decreased isolation, and the celebration of our amazing lives."
The group also "seeks to show our numbers, share our ideas, and call for an end to the violence, discrimination, stigmatization, poverty, hatred, rejection, medical abuse and neglect, and mental health pathologization that trans and gender diverse people face. We aim to increase the visibility and acceptance of Seattle’s vibrant trans and gender diverse communities by recruiting allies and engaging the wider community on trans issues while celebrating our rich diversity, strength, and beauty."
Trans Pride Seattle began in 2012 and is organized by Gender Justice League in association with local organizations.
